>> Having too much for retirement is a mistake I certainly hope to make. <<

Agreed. But the point, really, is that if know you can retire comfortably with $2 million, are you going to work another 10 years to make it to $3 million just because you'd rather retire with more money? Taken to the extreme, by that logic we'd never retire; we'd always be working a little bit longer, building up that nest egg a little bit more.

Time is money. Waiting to accumulate more money for retirement means dealing with the rat race longer.
