Two of my early posts (here and here) were about the path to wealth, emphasizing the importance of saving early and staying invested. My next few posts will focus on two themes.
On one hand, I will explain where wealth fits in the broader context of happiness. Happiness is a term I use loosely to describe a state of being that we aspire to. Everyone’s happiness is a little different, in the same way that we each think of God a little differently. Wealth contributes to happiness in a limited yet significant way.
On the other hand, I will focus on earning. Earning is both the source of saving, and an outcome of one’s work (profession). Since we spend much of our waking hours working, work has profound implications for happiness for reasons that are not wealth-related.
