All of us are wealthy in our own way. It’s just what target you put for yourself or an arbitrary figure. At the end of the day, I think if I can live my life comfortably then I am wealthy. By comfortable I mean if I can make sure I have those three meals a day, I am able to go to work and come back, and sleep comfortably, then yes – I am wealthy. It is not a figure.
I always bargain for time. I say, “you can increase my salary, but don’t expect me to work one second more than I do.” The salary can be doubled or tripled…I don’t care. The time I have for the other person or work is only this much. It can be for my own organization or someone else’s organization.
