This is not counting our home, which I should have bought by then, and hopefully paid off the mortgage. I am 33 now, and have saved more than enough for a down payment. I have tended to be financially complacent thanks to getting a bit lucky with stock options in two the jobs I’ve had. Starting a family and trying to buy a house in Silicon Valley is driving reality home.
So, now it’s clear that this goal is not possible if I go with the flow and continue being an engineer employed in a big company.
I don’t have a plan. May be that’s another goal: come up with a plan for the next 5 years.
Anyways, this millionaire thing is a stretch goal, but at least it’s easy to measure progress!
