bball, you wrote that success is so much more than financial; I agree so much. Some people can't seem to separate the two. Some people can't understand why anyone would turn down a promotion, but I understand completely. I think some people even equate the act of always being "on the job" and "being busy" as successful, even though they don't actually seem to accomplish any more in life than those who take a less stressful road. They would jump on a promotion in a heartbeat without even thinking of the added stress, but for me there's more to life than punching a clock.
