Should money (material gain and the things money can buy) be our goal? And if not, what should be?
Because I was watching these talks, and then brought their books, and found that there was no correlation between wealth and happiness beyond 75K a year.
Now this raises some interesting questions, like "what should our goal be" if happiness is not an end, but can become a mean. And even if we fail, we just synthesis happiness (For instance an equation in schools your taught is "work hard = money + rewards = happiness, but as psychology has proven that isn't really true at all)
Would be interested in what people would think! Because I feel that with this knowledge "working for money and the things money can buy" becomes rather useless.
