Should one work for wages or to satisfy one's passion?
Eventually passion is what matters the most. You wouldn't want to spend the next few years of your life in something that doesn't interests you, something you don't enjoy doing, and something that makes your work look even more miserable than it actually is. Money wouldn't definitely solve this.
Brony Ware, an Australian nurse, who spent several years working in palliative care, wrote a blog on the top 5 regrets people have on their deathbed. (You can read more here- http://www.businessinsider.com/5...)
Among the top 5 regrets, the most common one was:-
"I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."
In the end, people regret the choices they made. Choices that forced them to sacrifice their own dreams.
In simple words- Do what you love. Love what you do.
