The premise of this book is that you should focus on maximizing the enjoyment of your life instead of maximizing your wealth. These are two very different goals. Money is nothing more than a means to an end. Having money helps you achieve the most important goal of enjoying your life; but trying to maximize your money actually gets in the way of reaching the most important goal. Therefore, always keep this ultimate goal in mind. Make 'maximizing the total enjoyment of your life' your mantra, using it to guide every decision, including what to focus on with your financial advisor. — Bill Perkins

You should be focusing on maximizing your life enjoyment rather than on maximizing your wealth. Those are two very different goals. Money is just a means to an end: Having money helps you to achieve the more important goal of enjoying your life.
