    Would you accept a job for 10k less a year if you knew the work would make you happier?

    This is the sort of question that artists answer with a resounding YES!

    I wish I coudl say yes but, I could not afford that.
    Why limit yourself to just two choices- job with 10k more but not as rewarding versus job with 10k less that makes you happier?
    I want a job that makes me happier AND pays me 10k more!

    It really depends on what you want out of life. If material things are important then the scenario would probably not be a good move. If you are searching for some kind of fulfillment you may indeed be happier albeit a little poorer. Three years ago I took a position that paid me 40K less per year than I was making at the time. It was a difficult choice and to be honest there were many sleepless nights and doubts but in the end it was, for me, the right choice.
    I do, sometimes, miss the money but not to the point where I would ever consider going back.

    Yes I would. Money isn't everything, and for 10K a year, I am sure I will have time to devote to other things in life.

    Maybe I would do it in the future, but not right now.

    If I could afford to then yes.  At the moment I simply couldn't afford to do that but hopefully in a couple of years or so when I'm making more money from writing...

    I'd like to say yes I would, as I do think happiness is more important than money, but in todays world 10k is not enough for a family to survive on. I'd like to earn enough so as not to worry about the basic every day things. Enough for food to eat, enough to keep a roof over our head, enough to pay the bills and enough to pay for medical insurance.  So I guess the answer would be no....Unless my other half could support us and was happy with my decision too .

    I defiantly took a huge pay cut to operate my own company. I enjoy what I do. I love what I do. The funny thing is I have less stress about whether I am going to get laid off. I get paid now for the hard work I put in.

    Totally- and I would make sure that my hobby finds that extra 10k somewhere. It would allow me to get rid ofsome of this junk I have laying around. More garage sales, more ebay sales, I would find that extra 10k a year somewhere, that's less then 1k a year, it can be done
