This goes out to investment bankers and students alike - how do you stay motivated when it seems sometimes that the constant bullshit you are drudging through (work for bankers, college shit for students) has little meaning and no impact ?
Is the money that much of a driving force for you guys ?? What keeps you guys so cut throat and competitive for so long in life (people with top undergrad -> banking -> top MBA, etc.)
Want legit answers, not something along the lines of "Eye of the Tiger" or something. I am sure it is different for everyone, and would like to hear what it is for people on this forum.
