If the goal of your life is to accumulate assets, you're doing it WAY wrong.
Sure, money is nice, but the only people that are going to care about your money are people who will eventually try to claim it.
Accumulate wisdom, and experience, and meaningful events instead. The passing of those qualities to the next generation is more valuable.
As an added bonus, you will have had a life. Not many people can say that when it's over.
