Alain de Botton: A kinder, gentler philosophy of success

"Success" has been on my radar lately. Especially with the challenges, not only of getting published, but of this industry in general in the current market. I have to ask myself, if this career doesn't make me rich, is it still a worthy pursuit?
     If not, why? How many careers are really about money these days? The numbers seem to be dwindling.
     And if so, why? Why must money be a judge of one's creative output? And isn't it a fickle judge at best?
     Here's a very interesting take on what success is and what it should be to you.
