Life is a game. Money is how we keep score.

How much is enough?

Without asking this question, we blindly pursue excess. We have been acculturated to act rapaciously. Acquire, consume, indulge. More, more, more.

Without an answer, we consume without knowing how to proceed. We don’t know when to stop. Mindless desire takes us by the hand.

Of course, enough is different for each of us. It changes over time as our needs and circumstances do. Yesterday’s enough may be too much today. But enough must be defined if we are to succeed in creating wealth.

Less than enough is depriving. More than enough is indulging. Enough is the sweet spot in the middle, the place where intentionality intersects with contentment, where lust doesn’t get in the way of creating something meaningful.

Enough is enough when you decide it’s enough.
