Money & happiness

At this link you will find a very interesting article from Harvard Business Review Newsletter about money, succes, happiness and the meaning of life. 

I liked a lot the beginning and ending paragraph:

Everywhere you look, there’s compelling evidence that the single-minded pursuit of wealth often leads smart people to do incredibly stupid things — things that destroy what money can’t buy.

“You’ve got to be a mensch,” and that has to do with what we used to call character. To be successful means to have developed character… You should be looking for the joy, the struggle, and the challenge of work. What you bring forth from your own guts and heart. The happiness of hard work. No amount of money can buy that. Those are things of the spirit.”
