How Much Is “Enough”?

How Much Is “Enough”?

This question usually generates monetary estimates (guesses). I asked one group of successful consultants what they would do with $600,000 they didn’t expect. Their responses ranged from purchases to philanthropy, from paying off debt to trust funds. One person vehemently said, “I wouldn’t touch a penny of it!!”

My view is that “enough” isn’t about money, it’s about happiness—your own and others’. We have no right to consume happiness (or wealth) without also producing it.

So how much is “enough”? I think it’s when you’re loving yourself, loving others, creating a positive legacy, and creating significant discretionary time in your life.

I can always make another dollar, but I can’t make another minute.
