I advocate the importance of being calm during one’s journey towards FIRE. One will be irrational if he/she worries whether he/she will be able to achieve FIRE. The most important thing is to be calm and let the investment portfolio do its necessary work in generating the dividends. There is no need to monitor the status of the investment portfolio on a regular basis. The value of the portfolio goes up and down during the course of the journey. As long as the investment proceed is evenly spread within the investment portfolio, the FIRE journey is auto-piloted and one can focus on doing the things of his/her interest accordingly.
