Would you rather work at a job that you enjoy but pays little or work at a miserable job that pays a lot?
Miserable job that pays a lot, sans doute. If you can afford to live the life you wanted, it doesn't matter what career you're stuck in. And opportunities are limitless to the rich, so if you wanted to switch jobs at any point, more doors would be open to you. You can retire early. You can set up your own business/charity/enterprise without landing yourself in debt. WHY HAVE FUN WHEN YOU HAVE MONEY, EH?
