The quickest way to retirement is a system of thirds. Live on one third, save/invest one third, and use the other third for taxes and benefits.

Early on, that is difficult. 6% is sometimes an accomplishment. Later in life, saving a third becomes more practical.

I agree, setting up a regular savings program early on is best. Waiting too often means no savings.
