    Natural selection made it so that people that were satisfied sat around and died off. It's literally in human DNA to want more. People that are more ambitious are like to have more partners or more power; meaning more DNA passed on.

    But many are. They have set routines, everything is in order and don't really like to deviate from their comfort zone. I've known heaps of people just as I've described who've been in the same jobs and homes for decades.
