My friend Austin Kleon recently pointed me to this article, a counter argument to the “Do What You Love” school of career advice.

Look, the article says, we can’t ALL do what we love. Who’s going to dig the ditches? Fix the plumbing? Drive the delivery trucks?

Well, yeah, that is true.

Still, what do you expect? Thanks to the Internet, it’s never been easier to take a risk, so lo and behold, a lot of people are doing just that… with the commensurate amount of unintended consequences.

Still, just because we can’t ALL do something we love, doesn’t mean it’s not something worth pursuing.

The reality is, being successful is WAY, WAY, WAY easier if you love what you do, than if you spend all day hating your life, wishing you were somewhere else.

Loving what you do may not cure all of society’s ills, it may not even be particularly viable, but it’s a damn good place to start.

It all depends on how much risk you’re willing to take, how quickly you need to bring home the bacon.

It all depends on what you’re willing to give up.
