If anything we're looking at too little right now. I dip the tip of every wire in flux before connecting, so just a tiny bit of solder is enough to make a decent connection. (And it's fun to watch it just shoot up the copper and turn the wire silver.)

I usually just 'tin' both the wire and the switch terminal. If the terminal has a hole in it, it's usually necessary to touch the iron to the terminal before poking the wire through. Usually there is sufficient solder there to make a strong joint, but sometimes a little extra can neaten it up a bit. Large blobs of solder should be avoided- use the minimum necessary to make a strong connection.
