Lolz, Mr. Green, looks like we've got something else (besides FIRE ) in common. See my paper chain comment above. I like the idea of weekly links, too. In my case, my mindset was a little different. I made a 90-link chain and promised myself that at the end of 90 links, I'd be out of there. It worked and now, to quote Ernie Z, I'm "Wild, Happy and Free!"
