I think you are definitely on the right track. I suggest that people aim to save an absolute bare minimum of 10% of their gross income, and that as close to 20% is an excellent target. Obviously, the more you can save, the more you should have saved when you retire and I have never heard someone lament the fact that they had saved too much money. That being said, it is impossible to say whether it is enough without knowing how much you already have saved, what you expect (or desire) your retirement needs to be from an income standpoint, etc. The more you can put away earlier in life, the better off you will be long-term. So, again, I think you are on the right track and I think 20% is an excellent place to be. But I can't say with certainty whether it is "enough" or not for your particular situation without having more details.
