    It's a stupid question because once you have the assets, your outflows would be fairly low.

    Lol, go spend the first 40-60 years of your life obtaining all those and then hit 60 and think wow, I have all this, now I have the worst years of my life to enjoy them!

    Unless you're incredibly lucky or born very rich/come into wealth, you will not be able to "work" towards that.

    Be more realistic or you'll end up very unhappy/disappointed.

    I have colleagues pulling in over 100K+ bonuses and they don't have 1/4 of that.

    Depends on how old you are. Just in housing, you have 1.6 million in assets. What are you assuming the upkeep annually on those will be?

    What is 'Comfortable'? Do you want to travel? Will you vacation? Or are you just going to live subsistently?

    Why don't you people put commas in your numbers yeesh?
