Let’s not act as if money is not a necessity. Sure, we all want to be happy and too much money can be a problem. But too little is an even bigger problem. You cannot eat without money. You cannot have a home without money. You cannot help other people without money.
Don’t work yourself to death. Money cannot buy health. But what it can buy is health insurance and other things you need to live for as long as you can as comfortably as you can. We work hard so that we can enjoy our lives through our experiences and some materials. Put yourself in a position to have those experiences.
Make professional development a priority.
