Joseph Cambell is famous for saying, “Follow your bliss”. It’s common to hear people say things like, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Yet lately the most popular advice seems to be, “Follow your passion is terrible advice”, or, “Just work hard and get good at something and you’ll learn to love it”. Who’s right?
