There are better things than money, this is true. But when you're a new dad with a 3 month old and your wife stays home or two years away from retirement or the single mom who doesn't have a dual income....survival is at the top of their lists.
I totally agree with this approach...however in the meantime we have to make a living..however being happy is of total essence...so whatever makes you happy...usually is love, family and friends...wish all people could see that...money is good but comes way behind our lives...
+1 - good luck
AMEN!! Good luck and god bless you and your retirement!!
