I make about 55k/year currently. I currently save 10% for the retirement accounts. My goal is to retire early/mid 50's with at least 1million total net worth excluding a home if I buy one.

Thoughts are appreciated.

You are off to a good start.

You might want more than a million dollars. At a 4% withdrawal rate, that's $40,000 per year, and it will be $40,000 that will have depreciated considerably in value due to inflation.

Have you run any savings scenarios to see if you are likely to reach your goal?
