Zomg!, looks like I just need one more kid, a fancier car and my office at home and I'm there, based on snapshot.

Probably that 23% wanting more money, cos then they will have less people around them looking for handouts...

Who is this 77% who turn down a serious salary increase anyway, you factor in taxes and bills and it's not gonna be $1m? Crazy talk.

I rewatched Kingpin recently and when Bill Murray's character Big Ern wins the $1M prize he declares, "Finally, I get away with anything! Big Ern is above the law!" Thought that was an interesting take on "made it."

“Average now: 0 kids”.

Guessing they interviewed mostly the under-30 crowd?

If I buy a flamethrower, does that mean I've made it? Can I make the American Dream from Perth, Nowhere, Australia? We aren't a shithole country.

Funny. There is no mention of "making it" = paying down student loan debt. To make matters worse, the quality of education for that buck is absurd...nothing more than a next to worthless piece of paper from diploma mills.

I've lived both lives - making it and...not so much. I must say, although I loved my work, (making it), the trade-off ...well, isn't really worth it. I much prefer a simpler life. Different struggles come with that, to be sure...but, all in all a much, much happier life without being always on the "go".
