How “Doing What You Love” Can Be A Realistic Career Option

Here’s a quote from a recent article I read titled “‘Do What You Love’ Is Horrible Advice“: “It’s easy to confuse a hobby or interest for a profound passion that will result in career and business fulfillment. The reality is, that type of preexisting passion is rarely valuable.”

Um…no.

If you haven’t read that article go ahead and take a trip over there when you get a chance…or don’t if you’d rather not be fuming the rest of the day. The author is a great writer, with many other fantastic articles, but this one was just so wildly inaccurate.

I tried to just label it as one of those unfortunate things floating around on the Internet, but it was just gnawing at me. How many potential artists are out there now, squashing their dreams because they’re reading fear-mongering articles like this on the Web?

Well hopefully not
