Not going to make yourself an overnight millionaire through investment, as long as you have your 401k in a diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds. Need to find the number you need to retire with the lifestyle you want, then figure out how to save up to get that number.

It depends on your expenses. How much do you anticipate needing in an early retirement? Do you have any side hustles that can pay the bills?

Well, rent/ mortgage is usually the biggest expense and if you’re living in a paid off home you’re good to go. My point was more about other expenses (vehicles, travel, groceries, utilities, etc.). Depending on your lifestyle those could be a significant amount too. And you want to make sure you aren’t eating into your savings or you’ll run out (obviously). I suggest reading up on drawdown or withdrawal strategies. The closer you get to retirement the more you want in low or non-volatile assets

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
