Chris, the best advice is keep doing what you are doing.

When you get a statement from your plan, look over how your funds are performing compared to the other funds offered. Gradually shift to the best performing funds.

Do that review at least once per year, ideally once per quarter.

Out of this time spent, your own experience will be better than our advice.

On bonds and on Boeing stock, do consider how devastated you would be if the market crashed or Boeing went out of business. As a young person, this is much less of a fear than it is for people closer to retirement. They have less time to recover. But it also matters if you have responsibilities like family and children and if your spouse has a good job. Etc.

One size does not fit all. Think about it and decide what makes sense for you.
