Do you work to earn money so that you can do what you love, or work and earn money while doing what you love?
it depends on what you love. I feel like if you try to do things "so that" you run the risk of becoming consumed by your work or coming to loathe your work or just becoming bored by it
If you vote for "so that", you will not last long with your current job and will become easily bored by it.
the real joys in life are free. go out and walk around, go hiking, biking, enjoy nature, start a new hobby! kayaking, climbing, fishing, even just reading outdoors! you can do all those while making money
I get paid to play with jet engines all day... LOVE IT
I'm twelve and I'm currently trying to write a book. hopefully, if I make a bit of money from it, I can use the money to do what I love instead of being stuck in a hopeless job that gets me nowhere.
I'd love to be an astrophysicist because of the discovery thrill. I don't care about money as much as long as I love my job.
Not a terribly hard question, right?
I'm a second grade teacher. It gets insanely stressful at some points in the year, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Going to school today to work on my classroom. :) I love my career.
I want to be a scientist because I live for discovery. seeing that I'm not planning on having a family it's prolly going to be all I have
I get paid to fly airplanes every day. I have the best job on the planet
Best job In the world is being in the lead Humvee driving down IED lane in Afghanistan!!! Love the thrill. Idc about the pay. Cuz it's ur tax dollars. GO ARMY!!!
Actually I work at what I enjoy doing, so I can do what I love... I have a win win situation .. Only if I could get a raise!! Lol
and just to be clear what I'm saying, cuz i know most don't love what they do but still work hard (well assuming) but some ppl work hard while making it "very" apparent that they hate their job ie., Bad customer service reps, etc..
I don't love what I do but I definitely WORK HARD like I love what I do; strong work ethic..Wish more people had it. I can tell a lot of ppl that work in some position apart of the govt just HATE their job; at least that's how thy sound ovr the phone...I just hate unprofessionalism w/ a true passion
I love my work and also work to love life. Both for me go together. Took a while to love my job though. Lol
I'm 13...But, I hope to get a job that I enjoy doing while getting laid! Oh gosh autocorrect! I meant "paid"....
I work for money to live and enjoy life but I do love my job!!!!!!
I definitely really enjoy my work, and I am happy to put my time and effort into it. However, it's not my dream job (bakery owner!) and it's not raising my kids so it'd be really hard to truly say "while".
but I hope that I love my job in the future......
I don't have a job I'm only a 12 year old girl
I hate working. Thumbs down.
I fucking hate my job...does that answer the question?
I am a student affairs professional on a college campus and am humbled to say that I love my impact and work. How do people think creatively and passionately in environments where they aren't loving it? I say they never truly do! Live your work, and we all benefit!
@Andres2100 - You're holing on to a pretty ignorant/judgemental stereotype if you think all of us who are unemployed must be destitute and no longer deserve what we worked for.
This is strange so many people without jobs can afford iPhones and iPads.
MCR, me too, don't have one either!
Only 15 so yeah any job is gonna suck for a while, just waiting for the Marines
I don't have a job but when I get one I'll hopefully do something I love! I love acting but they don't get paid much unless ur a Hollywood or broadway star!!!
@FIAT2LUX, pizza delivery??
I work so I can still pay bills while I write
I don't know if there is a job out there that I would truly love. I would really love to be a stay at home mom and housewife to be honest ;) .. Unfortunately we don't really make enough money to be able to afford that at this point ..
I love the Marines. Awesome job.
@repubgirl2 - ditto! And I wouldn't change it for anything!!
I love to spend time doing fun things with my family and friends. So far, nobody's payin me for it. :) ... But i like my job alright.
Pretty much every job seems sorta fun, that's all I would want.
I make money doing something I love to be able to do things I live....that's why I went to college.
I love my job personally. Being a mom. I guess I could say I work (take care of the little ones) so tht I can do wat I love (c them grow up)!
love driving a truck, hauling new cars pays great....but my true passion in playing golf, however I'm no Tiger, Jack, or Arnold.
I think it's sad to just earn money. but not everyone will love their work.
When I get a job I will make sure it's what I love to do.
For now I work for money so I can do what I love. When I graduate in 5 years I'll be workin while doing what I love.
I used to work a job I hated so I'd have money for things I liked. Now I'm back in school working on doing something I love with the rest of my life.
I don't have a job but when I do get one it will be something that I love because if I do something that I hate it will just be miserable
I don't have a job bit what I want to do is something I love
My career = fun + stress + PAYCHECK + absolute requirement by government (if they can't raise me by phone they'll send the police out to find me and tell me it's time to get back to work). 15,000 new employees needed in the next 10 years, anyone know what I'm talking about?
hmmmm....I used to love what I do, I think I still do love what I do, just a few major changes have made if so difficult..... well, I just went back to school. maybe I'll find my happy place again.
Not everyone can love their work. Someone has to pick up the garbage. Someone has to do the hard labor. Someone has to do the dangerous work. Society needs people who are willing to do work they don't like. But I do think everyone should aspire to find work they love.
