Ray & Barbara Dalio :- Giving




At first, we experienced the worry about not being able to take care of the basics. When we earned more money, we experienced relief and then the diminishing benefits of having more money. We learned that beyond having enough money to help secure the basics – quality relationships, health, stimulating ideas, etc. – having more money, while nice, wasn’t all that important. We experienced directly what the studies on happiness show – that once the basics are covered there is no correlation between how much money one has and how happy one is – but there is a high correlation between having meaningful work and meaningful relationships to one’s health and happiness.
