True in theory, but what may happen is that the investments may grow beyond the expected growth rate.

For example, a semi-retired person may currently have $750K in investments and need to earn $10K to make up the shortfall. Keeping constant dollars, in a few years the net worth may grow to $1 million, thus allowing the semi-retired person to fully retire.
