“Follow your passion”

“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

“Do what you love.”

We need to work, as much as that sucks. We need to make money and support ourselves so we can have shelter, eat, and be safe. The money we make in exchange for work performed is then exchanged for goods and services that others create. It’s a good system. However, many people will tell you to follow your passions, to do what you love.

I totally disagree.

Here’s my problem with that method; it only works for a very, very few. In some cases, you can’t support yourself doing what you love. And, 5 years from now (or 10, or 30), are you still going to have the same fervor for what you’re doing?

I don’t want to come to hate my passions. Instead, I’d prefer to love my passions, and work at doing what I’m good at.
