Do You Work for your 'Passion' or for a 'Paycheck?'


I've heard it said that, 'If you do what you love and love what you do, you'll never have to work another day of your life!' The challenge for most people is this... their 'Passion' doesn't pay very well. So, is it better to work for your Passion or Paycheck?

    So, perhaps BOTH are possible? Living our passion AND getting paid to do it? I love your suggestion to find creative ways to incorporate our passion into a paycheck! Thank you for your input and thoughtful response!

    So, then our financial responsibilities are key to our decision? "I think its better to have less money (but enough to live off) and enjoy life than have a really well paying job that you hate." Well spoken - I totally agree! Thanks for your input!

    So then, your biggest online paychecks were a result of your portfolios filled with articles you were passionate about - proving that our 'passions' CAN be profitable! Thanks, Kailua-KonaGirl for your thoughtful input... it may help someone today!

    Yes, the proverbial paycheck is tremendously tempting at times! May you tiptoe through your retirement, choosing to engage in the things you are most passionate about! Thank you, Virginia, for your thoughtful input!

    Your examples are a great encouragement and reminder to allow our passions to guide us toward our professions. And, when we do, there are no regrets and retirement is rare! Thanks so much for your thoughtful input, connorj.

    You sound like a very busy lady. I pray the long hours invested between work, school and HubPages will be profitable enough to provide time for your passion!
