One of the few no-bullshit articles on the topic.

I am an engineer, confessed frugal, but even I haven't got close to the 50-70% monthly savings suggested here! :(

"[But] you talk to people sometimes and you know they're not happy with what they're doing with their lives, but at the same time they're not open to the idea of something else."

Perhaps the most important thing you need for early retirement is an ability to break out of conventional societal programming — the persistent notion that a person has to work for four or five decades and retire at 65 or later to live a productive, fulfilling, "normal" life.

[Early retirement] usually means taking up some other activity that is more meaningful to them [than work] but which would be hard to make a living from such as raising children, saving the world, rock climbing, making art, open source programming, writing, etc.," he writes. "It doesn't mean doing nothing."

Save half your income, retire in 17 years.

Intrigante. Non applicabile a tutti, di sicuro la maggioranza preferirebbe lavorare vent'anni in più e potersi concedere qualche cena in ristorante nel frattempo. Ma il principio "quando spendi per l'intrattenimento ammetti la sconfitta" cioè "pago venti euro e più per andare a ballare in discoteca bevendo cocktail annacquati perché la mia settimana è stata così noiosa e frustrante che ne ho bisogno" è molto logico.
Inoltre da questi articoli si capisce come la questione della pensione, un istituto che è stato concepito quando si immaginava che la maggioranza della gente ne avrebbe goduto per dieci anni massimo e invece ci troviamo ancora i nati nel '30 che hanno trascorso più anni da pensionati che da lavoratori, non è un'esclusiva italiana.

Seven in 10 Americans are disengaged from their jobs, according to Gallup. That's more than two-thirds of us who are unfulfilled by our work, just dragging our sorry selves to and from the office every day.

The basic framework of early retirement is pretty simple: cut way down on your spending, then invest your savings. High savings rates can lead to surprisingly fast retirements. For example, if you save half your income, you'll be ready to retire in around 17 years.

How do you know when you're ready to retire? Many of the retirees I spoke to rely on the "4 percent rule," a common rule of thumb that retirees can safely withdraw 4 percent of their savings each year without exhausting their principal. Jacobson and Tseng estimated they'd need $1.2 million saved up. The couple that blogs at Frugalwoods estimated they'd need $1.4 million. This gives each of those couples something like $50,000 to $60,000 to spend annually.

achieving financial freedom isn't just about budgeting or clipping coupons; it's about reconsidering your core values.

The lion's share of savings in early retirement come from what Jeremy Jacobson calls "the big three": housing, transportation, and food.
