For me, there aren’t many greater feelings than earning money doing something that I’m passionate about. It’s part of my happiness. No matter how busy I get, I always try to make room for the things I’m passionate about whether they earn income or not. Because my time is valuable, I have to put my time where there is a high potential return on investment (and that’s not just a financial return either). I’ve heard and read about several people who are high income earners but hate what they are doing. Money is only one part of the equation. It’s necessary to block sacred time out to do things that you love, and would do even if you didn’t get paid for it. But here’s the trick, if you do something you love (that provides some sort of service to humanity), more than likely you will become great at it and people will be willing to pay you for your passion. Win win situation right.
At the end of the day, working on your passions gives life to the soul and also gives you a deeper significance as a human being beyond just paying bills, sitting in traffic, and building someone else’s empire. You have to guard this time with your life because you will be a much happier, productive, and loving member of society if you are building something you can be proud of.
