I am 39 and looking to be aggressive.

One word of caution. Many people think they can be aggressive or they can tolerate a market correction. That is until it actually happens. You wake up one day and check your savings and, WTF?!? where did that 30% go?

Best thing is to sit down and write out your goals and write out your plan to get to those goals. This will help you stick to them better.

Also, you don't have to hit home runs, plenty of singles and doubles will get you in the Hall of Fame too.
