A quick question here: how do you quickly (& objectively?) measure wealth?

We've been using a quick and dirty rule of thumb to see how we're doing whereby wealth is measured in time, i.e.

wealth in months = total assets/monthly expenditure


wealth in years = total assets/yearly expenditure

I'd be interested to know of a more accurate/interesting/Foolish method.
