Find a job that you're passionate about

It's true: getting a job you're passionate about will make you happy!

What makes us happy?  It's a popular question nowadays, and hardly a week goes by without a new book, film or report with a new take on the question (if not the answer).

The SMH has an article on the subject today, and we were excited to see that the role of work in personal happiness got a quick mention.  The founder and director of Pathways Health and Research Centre in Brisbane, Professor Paula Barrett, is quoted as saying:

It is even better if you can find a job that you love . . . ''The best way to earn more money is to find what you're really passionate about and give yourself 100 per cent to that passion,'' Barrett says.

''Most people have jobs they don't really like, then they'll never be that wealthy. People do really well at what they're happy about.''
