sorry, yall. I lost the battle.

I’m against this whole philosophy because it taught an entire generation of kids that work wasn’t supposed to be work.

Choose work you are good at and pays you enough to do what you love (as a hobby). Working in a field you are good at will bring you more satisfaction and contentment in the long run and be more useful to society. You might get lucky and get both but don’t count on it. Just because you love something doesn’t mean you’ll be good at it. This idea that you have to love your work breeds all kinds of discontent.

For example: I love music but I’m deaf so… I’d make a second-rate musician and there’s enough of those out there we don’t need more of them.
(Note: Beethoven went deaf after he learned music - insert eye roll)

I agree with tngcas up to a point, but we're talking about work, not loving something you're not actually doing, such as hearing music. Actually, few people get to do work they really love as a career. If you enjoy what you do, I believe you'll actually do better at it. You'll be more enthusiastic at learning new skills associated with it. At the very least, you'll be less likely to slip into that "do the least possible" rut.
