<<There is no doubt in my mind that I want to retire early, and move from the day-to-day hassle that's corporate America. However, there will be a significant period of time (say, 10 years) between now and when I retire. I am going to wring every bit of "early retirement" out of this decade that I can, while still being employed.


Ooooh! Good point.

Personally, I went through a twenty year period of maximizing my income, savings and investments.

Now, I don't need to do that anymore. I am going to continue working, but on the terms that I wish to the greatest extent possible.

It sounds as though you have options and flexibility in how you construct your word day, week, month and year.
