A big part of the FIRE community is trying to get to retirement as soon as possible. Quicker can be quick enough for many people out there. Retire at age 30 and never have to work again! Retire in 10 years, instead of working for 40 years in a cubicle!
Well, my path is a different path because I enjoy my work and it gives me lots of time off to pursue my interests and be with my family daily. So, speeding to retirement for me is at a nice leisurely pace, with stopping along the journey to see the world’s largest dollar bill and enjoying a 3 pound cinnamon roll!
