What do you do with the money you earn? My career lacks purpose.
I just hit half a million in net worth (liquid assets). I've been saving for my entire career, and single w/o kids (5 YoE, now 240k TC).
But I have no idea how to spend it, and it sort of scares me that I don't have any real goals. I don't want a house, since I don't like the idea of being tied down to a particular place. You're going to say hookers and blow... I've tried that, but that isn't particularly satisfying in the long term either (and it's hit or miss in the short term).
I think part of the problem is that I make way more than I need to live a good life but way less than I would need to be "rich", e.g. fly first class, wear gucci, buy a supercar. I'm cheap af asset-wise.
As a result I can treat money like it's an infinite pool for my everyday living, so I eat out at nice places dressed in Target t-shirts.
But this comfortable life is devoid of meaning or mission. I'm negotiating higher salaries without any purpose, just to make the number go up. I get raises and bonuses for the hell of it, no change on my day-to-day living.
How do you find purpose to justify saving money?
