A silly question most likely, but is there a point where you should reduce the amount you contribute to your 401K in lieu of other investments? Currently I'm 43 and have about 2.5X of my annual income in a 401K, and contribute the maximum amount. But it does prevent me from saving much elsewhere or paying down my mortgage earlier, etc. Another area is college funds which could probably go for a larger contribution.

Tks, FuwlEd
