    Would you rather make more money doing a job you hate, or make less money doing a job you love?

    Definitely opt for the job I love if I could get by financially. The only I ever had that I truly loved and enjoyed was one of my lowest-paying, but only had it for 6 months before management decided it was time to promote me. I did my new job well, too, but I just didn't like it at all.

    Right livelihood has always been my goal and have never been money oriented if I could get by on what I earned. I have worked for room and board as part of a free clinic commune in New Orleans.




    If it's the right direction - swim upstream.

    I couldn't do a job I hated, no matter how good the money is.

    well right now, im in a good paying job that im not happy about. the ppl are great, and the job is ok.. but the management--- omg... we have to FIGHT to do our job. and there is just no compassion whatsoever. I swear, if the rapture occurred tomorrow, my boss would ask for documentation from jesus christ himself to explain my absence! lol

    If I can get by on doing a job a love, I'll go with that. If not, give me the well paying gig.
