    Do what you love vs. Love what you do (jobs)

    Which do you think is more important: doing what you love or loving what you do (in your career)? No 'both' option, sorry.

    I think loving what you do is more important. When I'm adding tags, though, I only found 'do what you love'. Hmm. I'll add 'love what you do'.

    If you do what you love you will love what you do.

    Loving what you do tho does not mean you love what you do.

    At least to me personally.

    What I do for a career (Construction brokering) is not a hobby that I love. But I do love what I do, as a practical career I enjoy, thus the 2nd option.

    Neither option is good advice, imho. They are too general. For me, "Do what you love!" could mean anything. "Love what you do!" makes me angry, as it suggests 'settling' and 'being realistic.' Balance is crucial. Every career path seems both enticing, and disappointing, depending on how you examine it.

    Of course. But for both advices there are good things about them too. Of course no career is perfect. But what do you think is the most important? Or at least more important than the other?

    Sometimes what you love to do is not very profitable. However doing something you absolutly hate is not great either. So I think do something you are good at that you dont totally despise that makes decent pay and want to shoot yourself everyday for doing.

    I agree with you.

    What I meant by doing what I love is doing what my hobby is.

    What I meant by loving what I do is not necessarily doing my hobby, but I love the job even if it's not my hobby.

    Sorry for bad grammar lol

    Sometimes what you love is not very profitable. Ever hear the term "Starving Artist"?

    As much I love music (it's my hobby), I don't want to be a musician.
