Have a friend who makes a fourth of what I do (we’re good friends so talk about this stuff now and then). He could make more by switching jobs and just doesn’t cause he has an easy 40 hour work week and doesn’t want more stress, also doesn’t need to make more as he can pay for everything he wants as is. Happiest guy I know and has given me perspective that what is important isn’t the dollar amount, it’s happiness.

Debt is a factor, but OP said specifically "earn". It was a joke tbh, I'm as happy as I can be about my future career - starting at Oliver in 1 and a half month

I think most people are overpaid for their value so the more interesting thing to me isn’t how much people earn but how they save/invest.

What if the amount you make isn’t enough to lead a “comfortable” lifestyle

That is true philosophically ..agreed ….but one should be aware of what the market is offering for your skill set and experience…It is in our corporate overlords’ interest if employees don’t know what a fare market offering is for themselves so they can low ball them without them knowing

Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
