Many would assume that if you let an investment sit (compounding annually at 10%) for 10x longer, it would produce 10x more. But those many people would be wrong.
10x longer is NOT 10x greater. It’s 117x!
Time is the miracle worker of compounded interest. More time creates vastly more wealth. So more important than your rate-of-return, or the amount your investing, is the length of time you’re able to invest.
