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?”


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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.
