A second point is that you should try to invest your funds to provide at least enough income to pay the annual MRD.

I think most successful retirees look at total return (i.e., interest, dividends and capital gains) instead of limiting themselves to income producing securities.

I'm more than happy to sell a few shares and take a capital gain to fund my annual living expenses.
