The real question is how good you are at trading and investing. I have certainly withdrawn more than the 4%, and now have more money than when I started withdrawing. If you are just a passive, buy-and-hold type, you will not do particularly well. On the other hand, if you are intelligent and aggressive, and willing to go short in the case of another recession (which does not appear likely at this time), then you can do much better.
