Ambition vs Happiness

A guest blogger, Eric, on Brute Reason, wrote a post called "The Tradeoff Between Ambition and Happiness." I think he makes some good points, but as I said in the comments, this only applies to people who do not like their jobs and are only in it for the money or prestige.

"Ambition requires focusing on what you don't have," Eric says. "Happiness requires focusing on what you do have."

But working a great job isn't about what you do or don't have. If you love your job, it's about what you're actually doing. Staying over when you love your job is great, because working makes you happy.

What do you think?
