This Article on Quartz about doing what makes you money over your passion really made me grateful for my own career goals of working in finance. Luckily for me, it is something I enjoy learning more about, and, I hope, will be something I enjoy working in. It is pretty safe to say that if you work in finance, money is a big motivator for you. At the same time, if you spend your free time on a finance-based website, I assume you also enjoy the field.
Moving on, I'm curious about what the money means to you. That may seem like a silly question, but beyond paying off loans, retiring your parents, financial security, having luxury items etc. it can mean something different to different people. Warren Buffet wants to be known of the greatest allocator of capital of all time. Some people view it as a byproduct of advancing the human race and technology, where I believe Elon Musk types would be placed. Personally, I see it as the best indicator of what you have contributed to society.
So, once you've reached a certain threshold where money provides very little utility, what does money mean to you?
