One thing that I've found interesting over the years is observing what causes folks' early retirement plans to fail. No matter how wealthy you are, some people just can't cope with life unless thay have a place to go and someone to tell then what to do once they get there (i.e., "a job".) Outside of this type of retirement planning "psychological failure", financially retirement plans fail for three primary reasons; insufficient savings, an undiversified portfolio, and underestimating living expenses in retirement.
