Why would you not make the number one goal the pursuit of wealth?
Humans have only a finite time to spend trudging upon the Earth. Why spend most of it slaving away in some job [ J ust O ver B roke] instead of enjoying things while you are young and fit enough to do it. To think you will retire then go travel and do those things you were too busy being a wage slave to do will not happen if your health is fading by then. Would it not make more since to become wealthy as quick as possible so you can retire early or at least have your time be your own? Rather than settle being just some hack punching a time card why would it be wrong making the acquisition of wealth paramount to anything else you would have going on?
