Maybe I’m a little different from others, but I find it very helpful to “know the numbers”. Little things like, how long will it take me to become a millionaire. Based on a calculator I found, it will only take 64 years for me to become a millionaire, if I live that long! Other numbers that are fun to know are how long will it take to pay off my mortgage, and if I gave up my daily Starbucks and saved the money how much would I have?
Over at Bootstrapper there is a list of 100 different calculators where you can find your numbers. Let me know how long it will take you to become a millionaire!
