I've been contemplating writing a posting called "The Problem with Passion" for some time now. Hat tip to Ann Bares for jump-starting me by sending me the link to Seth Godin's great posting "Maybe you can't make money doing what you love." I couldn't agree more with everything he says:
Take a few minutes to read his posting and pay particular attention to the conclusion:
"Do your art. But don't wreck your art if it doesn't lend itself to paying the bills. That would be a tragedy."
Look for another posting where I will expound more on this topic soon!
