...a set of guidelines from Time...I would view these as minimum requirements:
What You Should Save By 35, 45, and 55 To Be On Target:
Getting started is half the battle when it comes to building retirement security. Setting near term goals are important too. Here's how to do both.
By Dan Kadlec
At age 35, you should have saved an amount equal to your annual salary.
At age 45, you should have saved three times your annual salary.
At 55, you should have five times your salary.
When you retire at age 67, you should have eight times your annual pay.

...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
One option is clearly to reduce your annual income so that it fits the savings criteria.
Age 55 with annual income of $ 100,000 and savings of $ 250,000 means you have underprovided.
There are two choices. Either find another $ 250,000 from somewhere or simply take a 50% paycut.
You just can't beat sound retirement advice
Someone who has ThB 20,million saved by the time of 60 or so can retire reasonably comfortably in Thailand, especially if they have bought their own accommodation....and keep out of the bars.

'If' you want to be healthy you 'should' eat right and exercise.
People get condtioned and think 'should' is what 'has to' to be done.Its your choice. Retirement articles like this are shit.
For what reason 'should' i save according to this example?
a buncha assholes trying get people to be like them
fuckem, cluez, fuckem. they don;t know shit
I'm way behind that schedule. Hell, even if I continued with the great job and healthy 401k I had prior to the recession I would still be well behind this figure now. I just don't see it happening, not if you have any kind of life, a mortgage, rent anywhere but the ghetto.
One of the reasons I bailed on that life. Why work my ass off now to have money when I'm too fucking old to enjoy it?

So basically save (only) 1/5th of your salary.
Sweet! I'm ahead in life.
Though can the article tell me what to do with it?

I'm eight years ahead, best news i've had all year.
For example, let's assume someone is making 50,000 baht per month. At 67 could this person retire comfortably with 4.8 million baht? It's possible, but I don't think so.
