You can have lots of money, but if you don’t have the time to spend it on/or with the ones you love, what’s the point?
In this case the “chase” may be better than the catch. You and I are geared towards achievement, it’s one of our 3 main motivators (autonomy and purpose are the other two), but maybe the most fleeting. What does more money represent? What will you do once you get there? Will you be satisfied?
Maybe the deeper question is, “What is it you’re really after?” I can’t speak for you, but for me it’s to spend time with my wife, daughter and son on the way. Money is a means to an end, not an end in itself. I gladly sacrifice money for more time spent with those I love. Maybe you’ve never thought of time/money that way.
