When it comes to making money, it is not all about money.
What seems paradox at first, makes great sense, once you understood the concept. Money is not an end in itself, never can be. You salary should be a happy feeling, a feeling of achievement and of purpose.
Your job should fulfil you and be a happy part of your life instead of money-giving torture. Think about this considering your recent and future jobs.
