Kids will be out of college and will have no debt. What annual after-tax income stream would you consider enough to safely retire early? I know it’s all based on personal lifestyle choices, but wanted to see if there’s a consensus.

Last week I had an interview with Infosys, it didn't go well as per my expectations but i was able to answer most of the questions asked by the panel and they said I will get the feedback from HR team but it's been more than one week and I didn't get any update on this. Yesterday I also wrote an email to the HR who scheduled the interview but still no update.

Should I consider that I am not being selected?
