That's an easy one. Go to the nearest casino's roulette table and put it all on 17.

It's all about risk v. reward, so you have to specify your comfort level.

The more important step is to find a way to get yourself in a position where you're saving automatically every month, without thinking about it.

Then it adds up quicker than you would think.
