"A dead bird does not drop out of its nest." Winston Churchill. While sitting on a platform waiting to speak, the seventy-eight-year-old Churchill was handed a note by an aide. Churchill glanced at the message, which advised, "Prime Minister—your fly is unbuttoned." Churchill then scrawled on the bottom of the note and passed it back. It read, "Never fear. A dead bird does not drop out of its nest."
I am 40 and would like to retire before 60. I am fortunate to work for a state government and I am vested in their pension. So, I am set when I turn 60+. Because I don't have to worry about saving for a normal retirement age, I have been able to put almost all of my savings towards the goal of early retirement, by investing in a taxable brokerage account.
