    Clearly this is not an either/or situation.

    There's no point earning stacks of cash, if you've no free time to enjoy it.

    There's no point having loads of free time, if you don't have any money to do anything.

    Balance, people.

    I am asking myself the same thing sometimes. Some very bright people simply don't know what to do.
    I think that is the key. Most graduates still don't know what to do when they finish their studies, so they consider "any job" to get some money. The majority of people who graduated on my course are a huge example of that.

    Personally I aim for jobs that challenge me. Those happen to pay more, which is a nice bonus.

    I get bored of things I find too easy.

    I doubt that is true. Since there is little correlation between 'challenge' and pay.

    Or are you intending getting a job as a samaritans phone operator?

    Why would I want to work to earn money, so I can live longer to work some more and earn some more money and...

    Better to spend all ones time (or the vast majority) doing something one enjoys and gains satisfaction from, than to spend time chasing money so I can enjoy a smaller proportion of time.

    Yes there is a corrleation between challenge and pay. The harder a job, the fewer people can generally do it, hence the more money someone is willing to pay for one of the fewer peoples time.

    Because maybe not everyone wants to do jobs like banking where you could earn six figures (investment banker) but hours are ridiculous and in most other jobs you could work just 5 days Mon to Fri much less pay but at least you have more time with your family, friends etc..
