Thought of Today: February 26, 2018 at 09:58AM

“In America, for daily emotional well-being, the sweet spot is an annual income of $65,000-$95,000, and for long-term satisfaction that number is $105,000”

More importantly:

“People were likely to see decreased happiness if they achieved more than the optimal income for long-term satisfaction, partially due to a phenomenon described as the “hedonic treadmill”, in which people adjust to increases in income.”
