Money is a great eaquilizer, I think. If you do something you love for money, it makes it less fun, because it somehow desecrates the act and you have to stick to deadlines, rules and what other people tell you to do. On the other hand, if you do something you hate for money, it might make it bearable, if not even enjoyable.
And then it all depends on how much money you make. Becoming filthy rich while doing something you love would be the optimum, of course. But if that option is not available (as for 99.9% of all people), would you rather make a lot of money working a job you hate, or make enough money to get by, by doing what you love?
Well, I guess you know which option we here went for!
