» And I thought 3 was the magic number... from spinme.com
Turns out that earning $40,000 is a significant turning point in a typical American's life, and that the change of attitude from $15K/yr to $40/yr is far more significant than the difference in your life moving from $100K/yr to $1MM/yr. [Read More]

» Habit is Deadening from Saturn's Blog
On a slightly related topic, here is really interesting read on another's blog about the amount of money we make and happiness and being fulfilled. Oprah had something to say on it, and if she says it, I believe it! :-) [Read More]

» $40,000 from Music Business
According to Penelope Trunk of Bankrate.com, "The first $40,000 makes a big difference in one's level of happiness. After that, the impact is much smaller. The difference between someone making $40,000 and someone making $15,000 is far greater than the [Read More]

Thank God!

I've been struggling with money v. happiness and "What do I want out of life?" questions for some time and got a load of negative feedback from my own blog here (http://www.ecademy.com/node.php?id=36523).

Glad to know I'm not on my own.

We live in a world where most of the people on the planet live on less than five dollars per day. It is natural --- but in a way obscene --- to say than one needs more than $100 per day to be "comfortable". I know of no way out of this predicament, but it should make all of us "uncomfortable."

I'm 45 yrs old, my house is paid for, my car is paid for, my husband makes reasonably good money. I want to chuck my current job to become a home health aide to help seniors. I have always loved old people. Money doesn't mean that much to me. My happiness comes from making others happy.

The studies delinking money with happiness leave out a big, white elephant -- how a person earns her living. Without getting too personal, I earn above the $40,000 threshold but am by no means rich. What I currently do to bring in my income is to drag myself to a nine-to-five job. I am quite aware that my attempts to increase my income are really connected to the goal of increasing it to provide the cushion that will enable me temporarily to take off the time to establish some other way of making a living. (Yes, I am also working on that goal now in my spare time!) I could live happily on my current income, continuing not to have the stuff that I covet but don't have, if I could just spend my time in a more productive and less hurried way.
