We only get to live once. Pursue a job that ties in with your passions. Money will just follow. Though it certainly involves risks, especially financial ones, you know yourself better than the rest of us. Go for it.

if youre a family man, choosing option 1 may reap a lot of money yet you'll be deprived of precious time bonding with your kids or spending enough time with them. option 2 might be a better choice provided your earnings will be fixed so that your family will be assured on consistent monetary support.
option 1 might be a good start for singles.go up the corporate ladder.once financial security is attained, shifting to option 2 will be your retirement.any job that you enjoy and has a passion for it is just another hobby.

I'm somewhat at Road 2, thinking of Road 1. My conflict is that my current work can be done somewhere else--with higher compensation.

Just tired of transferring after every 6 mos/1 year... :rolleyes:

I know how you feel. I've been transferring from business to business and position to position in pursuit of ROAD 1 for a long time.

At this point ROAD 1 efforts will finally give me the good results, but I'm stepping onto ROAD 2 now... Pursuing Film School this 3rd Quarter. ^_^

It is always nice to have fun and at the same time you are being paid for it. Loving what you do and being paid for it.

Passion! Road # 2

Don't let the odds intimidate you, just as long as you enjoy your job, you will soon prosper, believe me....

All it takes is absolute dedication and patience.

I'm young, but I can speak this way because I've experienced what it feels to work for your own money.

pag galing ka sa mahirap, practicality will speak for itself - money is of the essence..pag well off ka na pagkapanganak mo, passion ang mas importante sayo..

Passion. If you are doing something that you are really passionate about, money is just the affirmation of your work.

Passion makes the job easier but sometimes you also need to think about money to be able to provide for your family... I believe it's best to have both!
