My theory on the BMW method is that I need enough money to meet my budget on Intercst's Safe Withdrawal Rate.

Then I take, maybe 10% and invest in BMW stocks. If it works, I get to re-set my withdrawal amount. If it doesn't work, I've got to figure out how to tighten my belt 10%.

If you aren't retired yet, it just moves the retirement date.
