I'm enjoying this thread.
I've got my health and reasons to live.
I think the various components you mentioned earlier make good sense.
In general, it seems like how you spend your time (enjoying it and doing something worthwhile and productive) rather than what money you make seems more important in the job category.
And if you make more than you need to get by, that is gravy that you can use for more productive projects.
As far as that goes, what is rich in society these days anyway?
Is it making a certain salary per year? Or having a certain amount saved up?
It is hard to know what rich is these days when you constantly hear on the TV that people make 20 mil per film and so many celebrities have a few hundred mil saved up.
But I guess that is just wealthy.
Just as an aside, where does rich start and end by today's society standards?
Getting to do the things you enjoy and doing them with people you care about and feeling like it makes a difference seems like the biggest measure of success.
