#15: Don’t Do What You Love
We’re constantly being bombarded with messages about how we should turn our passions into careers. The thing is, this may not be the best advice for everyone. Some people actually recommend never turning what you love into a full-time gig. Instead, having a boring but well-paying job can benefit your happiness.
If you turn your passion into work, there’s the chance that you could end up hating what you once loved. You don’t have to monetize every single thing you do. It’s healthy to have hobbies and activities to get excited about outside of work. Having a job that gives you benefits and vacation time can give you more free time to do what you love in the long run.
