I like the idea of wealth being measured in terms of  life experiences, and the basic notion that the riches we seek during work lie far beyond the financial.

a ReFocusing of personal ambition – away the classic capitalist focus on financial returns – to one that measures success by recognizing that “there is no wealth but life” – wealth is best measured by counting the things that we imagine on out death bed, the things that really matter to us. a return to a set of values that prioritizes Personal relationships, Compassion, wisdom and engagement with our community other those normally associated with success in our society.

I wonder what i would have done if i understood this when i was in high school
