I don't have to be a mathematician to know it's ALOT easier to hit 500k than some of the higher dollar amounts mentioned on this board as being 'requirements'

Not to be disagreeable but, I found the 1st $500,000
came alot slower and harder than the next one(s).

Look at any chart of compounding and you will see that at certain point (around 18years) the real fun begins.
