$3 million is kind of chump-change in terms of long-term retirement money- it's a great starting point, but not enough to quit your day job over, unless you're already old. I mean, serious illness or some kind of major catastrophe could wipe that out pretty quickly, as could investment downturns, etc...

My guess is somewhere in the $20 million range for me.

That would give me enough to spend a couple on some fun stuff like a vacation home, as well as leave enough to live very comfortably AND hopefully not dip into the principal, even with inflation.
