There are groups of people who find different things of value. One chases the title. The other chases for more money. Again another group is chasing freedom and leisure time.
This is something where different generations have different answers. As I notice with the millennials who statistically speaking seek out more freedom and leisure time. But 50 years ago, it was super important to be a Doctore or similar.
I think it highly depends to question all this for yourself. Decide what is important to you. What are you willing to work towards. And then take steps to achieve that lifestyle.
