I guess it all depends on what age you become aware of FIRE and then when you can position yourself to become FI. I was 36 when I first became aware of FIRE however it took another year or so before I was able to start doing heavy-duty saving. I FIREd at age 47. When it comes to FIRE, I think it is helpful to set a realistic goal--however just know that things may not go exactly to plan. Like Crazyinlovefool, I too elected to MOOTFL for a while. And like most people my portfolio took a hit during the recent stock market downturn. The net effect was I FIREd two years later than I had planned and with a smaller portfolio.
