You've played by the rules - saved, invested, worked hard and you're there. No mortgage, car loans or any kind of debt. You know how much the pile grows each month and it's nothing to sneeze at.

How do you know when it's time to call it a day? And retire?

You simply do the math.

How much do you have? How much do you need to take out every year? What rate is the "pile" earning?

I would say depend on your personal goals and if you have any hobbies that you would like to try out. For me I would like to travel someday and do some volunteer work oversea at different countries. I am thinking maybe sometime next year that I would like to try that out for a couple of month. I have been saving and investing, so I am prepare to explore a new culture and look at different perspective. I am pretty sure I can return back to work elsewhere but as long as you’re not in too much debt, maybe you can explore other options too.

I think it's important to figure out ahead of time how much you need/want to retire and stick to it. Lots of people get caught up in the "one more year" mentality just for the sake of adding more money to the pile. There is no point in accumulating so much wealth and never enjoying it.
