Exactly how much does money matter?

We all have different perceptions about money (we need in store).

How much should we prioritize on making money?
Pursuing your passions not always guarantee you huge amounts of ready made money. And the work you do for pursuing money might become monotonous too soon.

What is the conclusion we'd reach after a few years of living on our own, according to any of the above two choices?
There will be unavoidable events and turns in life common to all, where money is also important. When we go through more years in life, our perception about both money and passion might change.

At this age, my answers to these questions consist of mostly guesses. Looking forward to similar guesses as well as practical wisdom from people who've actually passed many of those important phases in life 😀
How much should we prioritize on making money?
Prioritize is a big word for me.
I always roam around 3 words - Work, Money and Satisfaction.
I'll be satisfied If I love what I'm doing but I can't satisfy if I do not get enough satisfied money for my work.
Satisfaction = Work + Money!
I should be satisfied with my work and money.

Just my personal opinion though.
I completely agree with Sada.

But quoting this,

Of these two choices, for the longer run I would go for the first option. Passion is very important for me in whatever I do. I think (hope 😁) the money will follow.

A simple and nice point there 😀
The hard thing is perhaps the pursuit to find that perfect combination!

Ask, and ye shall Receive. 👍
But then I feel, just do your work and you will be rewarded accordingly. 😁

It's really very hard to get a combination that can give you a complete satisfaction. Only you can help you to get satisfy. Just weigh the things and see 😀

you do something not very interesting, you might end up doing it for the sake of doing and not for the love of doing it. result - medicore performace. that will result in not so good money atfer all.
pursuing what you would love to do most for next 50 yrs of life (to make a living ) is it.
as far of how much money is too muc - my father would say -" if you can save 50% of your earnings, you have enough money"- i follow it and i am happy.
