Of course everyone's mileage will vary quite a bit on this one. But that's how I felt, FWIW.
I didn't persue my commercial until I had over 200 hours of simply enjoying the freedom of flying, as I viewed my private as a "license to fly". I mean, no offense, but all that "license to learn"/"license to get killed" type of crap always erked me a bit.

,...but then, all the stupid things I've done as a pilot have all been in pursuit of commercial aviation not joyriding, so maybe I'm a bit biased?
