You do you. If you can afford to save more and max your contribution then go ahead

I can save 75% of mine , hopefully I can retire earlier

Where do you live??? In a treehut???

30% is pretty good. Better than most people. I make 85k as well, this past year I saved ~40%

My onsite lead expects us to attend those meetings till 9:30 pm.Kindly suggest.What should I be doing
