Choosing Between Making Money and Doing What You Love

Choosing Between Making Money and Doing What You Love – Leonard A. Schlesinger, Charles F. Kiefer, and Paul B. Brown – Harvard Business Review via Freaklabs.

“If you’re really passionate about what you do, but it’s not going to make you a lot of money, should you still do it?”


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I made it through and retired early. I consciously balanced the things I loved versus the things that paid. It was a good time for computer software.

    My first advice would be “manage your downside,” or at least understand what those words mean. In #OWS we had the example of a guy who “invested” $45K or whatever in a MFA centered on puppetry. In that case, you might be better off buying some puppets and getting at it.

    My second advice would be “stay open to a day job.” When you want real freedom to create without restriction, the day job can fund that. There isn’t really a requirement that avocation and occupation be one and the same. Many of the greatest hacks are avocation at work.
