How many millions will you need before you say it is enough ?

"“Here, the top 1 percent chases the top one-tenth of 1 percent, and the top one-tenth of 1 percent chases the top one-one-hundredth of 1 percent,” he said.

“You try not to get caught up in it,” he added, “but it’s hard not to.” "

Arasa, It is generally accepted that the first million (or thousand) brings you more happiness than the second million (or thousand). It diminishes as the number of millions grow. So it has to approach zero somewhere. The point is when ? That is when we say enough.

Single digit millionaires are no where near that point I guess.

Note, the enough will be just for money. We may still choose to work for various other reasons

When my bank balance crossed a lak for the first time...I got a feel good feeling! (Before that haven't seen much thousands..)

After that it has seen many laks! But it was never exciting like the first one :)-

Is it 1 M or 2 M or 1 B?? Its a tough question to answer :)-

True I was very happy when I first bought a land. After that it is business as usual. Thirst to acquire more will be always there. If it is gone it will be as good as dead. For some it is money or others it may be some other
