    There is no right answer. But there is a right answer, for you.

    I suppose that means knowing the right questions to ask

    I think, yes. I'm experiencing some of that, fighting it, trying to balance it.

    It's about what motivates you. Some people enjoy stability, some people thrive in facing new challenges daily. The danger of being content is that you get in a rut and become complacent. The danger of pushing yourself higher and higher is that you don't stop to enjoy the fruits of your success.

    I used to work for a company where they expect every employee to achieve a yearly performance that is worthy of promotion regardless of whether there is an opening in the org chart. It was basically "Move Up or Move Out"

    No, in my experience they're far from being equivalent. There's one situation which causes their sinergy: when/if you were working towards something which was basically impossible to obtain, and-or would have required an enormous amount of sacrifices. In that case, giving up can lead to contentment, but I would argue that it can still be considered as an emotionally positive setting.

    Contentedness is an undervalued attribute in our information economy.

    FTFY. Content people don't feel the need to buy stuff.

    And you were inaccurate in your assessment.
