Hi all, I am wondering if "it's not enough just" is followed by a verb, we must add "to" in front of this verb.

For example, It's not enough just to live in ease and comfort, you need to have goals and make an achievement.

Am I right in that we cannot omit this highlighted "to"?

    Yes.

    The word "just" is irrelevant to the construction - it is "It is not enough to <verb>." but "It is not enough <noun>."
