Without giving away personal details, does anyone on here make less than they’d like or hope for â€“ yet still wake up each morning happy and eager to get to work?
I’m asking because I personally think that ones performance and dedication to their work will always be the best if money is not looked at as the primary objective. I understand full well the importance of making enough to live well, but should that goal take precedence to enjoying your work and doing the best you can simply because you love what you do?
There are MBAs who work in sterile office environments and make six-figures, but some of those whom I’ve encountered don’t seem very excited when they leave for work in the morning.
Hope what I said doesn’t sound confusing. I’m just saying that I’d definitely be content making less $$ but still be spending my whole life dedicated to a craft that I enjoy tremendously. Look at Eames and his wife… almost every photo they look so happy working together… smiling. You couldn’t pull the man away from his career and offer him a different job. He didn’t exactly look like a man who had too many regrets in his last days.
