    It would depend on how badly I needed the money to pay bills. If I could survive on 50% less and still make it, I'd probably go for what I enjoyed.

    I did this. Although it wasn't 50 percent less, but I did take a pay cut to take a different job that I considered my dream job. So I would say yes, I would probably do it again.
    All the money in the world can't buy happiness. I'd rather be happy doing what I love to do than be miserable every day. I guess its all in perspective.
    On the job stress causes health problems, I think I would rather be happy.

    I'd go for what I enjoyed...as I did in real life. The cost of a job you don't like can't even be measured in dollars, and even if it means living in a cardboard box, doing what you love is so much more worth it. That said, you are also much more likely to be successful doing what you love, so the long-term benefits both financially and otherwise almost always outweigh doing something you dislike.
