The journey to FIRE will be in many varieties. Some take it slowly. Some take it quickly. I prefer to take it slowly and enjoy the process. Nothing beats the best on the slow and steady progress to FIRE. It took 18 years and 4 months to achieve FIRE. It’s not long or short as per my perspective. I feel good on such progress and this is the way which fits my preference. I no longer have the urge to compare with others. It is quite tiring and energy sapping comparing with other people. I do not see the need to do so. There is no need to compare with other people. People come into this world empty-handled and leave the world in the same status. This defeats the purpose of comparing with one another. The best approach is to live the life to the maximum and enjoy every moment of life.
