“But why in the world do we need money, if all we ever do is keep working?”
– Arkady Strugatsky
When you know what your priorities are, it’s much easier to live your best life. People who make the conscious decision to throw themselves into their work have the resolve and the discipline to do so, and continue for many years. However, if their only priority is work, they may begin to let other aspects of their life by the wayside: family, human relationships, discovery, universal causes. You never want to look back at your life realizing that you’ve made a lot of money but have no time to spend it.
