Surely there’s no exact answer to this question, and I think I’m going to need help on how to establish criteria to determine how to define my “prime.” For example, athletes will hit a certain age where they are thought to be in their “prime.” I’m not an athlete, but at some point I will have to be in my prime, right?
For example, when would I be in peak physical condition? When can I expect to be earning the most money, without the trade off of being on the back end of my life. I guess that’s all I can break it down to right now: when will I be making the most money with the largest amount of productive, healthy years ahead of me? For the sake of the argument, assume an average, healthy, educated male.
