OK now I've hit my goal of a certain size portfolio (spread out mostly among stocks then some small mutual funds, maybe some annuities (gifts), life insurance cash value a house other cash etc.. With this spread all over the place how do I make the decision what to sell first, how do I go about getting the cash needed to live on? Do I sell some stocks (the best, the
worst), do I sell monthly or yearly or whatever?

Recently there have been some articles in the IBD about how to take a monthly income from some various mutual funds (steady amount, adjust for inflation,
adjust for gain or loss in the fund etc.).

Thanks I am currently struggling with this decision (some advanced planning - plans were made to be changed) and I am sure that many others are in the
same boat.
