As far as I am concerned, I am happy with whatever I have and that is sufficient for me to run my activities. So I don't want to run after money. I struggled a lot for money in the initial days of my career. Those days I used to work extra hours so that there will not be financial problems in the house. But once I am comfortable. I stopped working extra hours and started managing the family with my salary.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Knowledge is power.
As being normal people how we should keep a balance between enjoying our life while working for making this life enjoyable it all depends on the mindset of each of us. I don't like to run after excessive money which snatches away zest of life. I am happy with what I have.
