Avoid the dichotomy of doing what you hate so you can do what you love in your free time. This does not make any sense to stay in a job you do not like so you can have a weekend off or take 1 vacation a year. The only reason this makes sense is to sacrifice a few years if the money is fantastic. The problem is then people do not know how to get there money right and develop a plan to transition into another career. Their lifestyle increases to the amount of money they are making and they can’t change without it being extremely painful. This causes people to get stuck because they don’t know any better and they are not working on any other skills than the ones currently paying the bills. They are caught on the hamster wheel with no way off.
The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.Albert Einstein
