I love this!

I just ran my numbers and, if I did it right, I have 15 days so far. That's a really lovely way of seeing it and I like the idea of a calendar at work! That'd really motivate me.

Just to be sure - how is everyone else calculating the return they're earning? I'd seen the 6.5% figure earlier in this thread and am going off that so far. Assuming I have a daily cost of $50/day and have $11,600 invested right now, does my math check out?

I'm not calculating a return on my earnings. I'm just using it as motivation right now -- how many days could I fund, RIGHT NOW, if I quit my job forever, irregardless of what those assets will look like in the future? So, I'm going simple:

-Cost of a forever day (for me calculated using a 3% withdrawal because I'm more conservative than many people on this forum), which is daily cost * 33.

-Liquid assets/cost of a forever day.

Is there anyone who is figuring the return in? Based on your math, MoneyMouse, I assume you are.
