I have an idea and I'd like to see if it makes sense. I have $25,000 in a mutual fund I've earmarked for retirement.

Should I max out my 401k contribution (make less take-home pay) and sell off some of my mutual fund to supplement my lost income?

This would place my investments in a more tax friendly positition from which to grow over the next 40 years.

What issues do I need to keep in mind (i.e. fees, loads, future job changes?)

Any ideas/help are appreciated.
