Working for Love vs Money

I was talking to my family the other day when we went to Keppel Marina. The view was fantastic and the atmosphere was relaxing. How i wish I could be there everyday looking at the sea while enjoying the brisk.

Then I began to ask them an interesting question, which left some or many in dilemma at times:

"Assuming a 10 year horizon at least and if you have to choose one, would you rather choose a job which you don't like but pays you $5000/month or a job that you like but pays you $1000/month".

I received different answers as i began to ask people around me and the thoughts that they have. Now let me ask you the second follow up question:

"Now let me tweak the question a little bit. Assuming a same 10 year horizon at least, would you rather choose a job which you don't like but pays you $5000/month or a job that you like but pays you $4000/month"

Would your answer remain the same?? :P

Definitely something to think about ^^.

  1. Can go to nearby Labrador Park Hill.

    Buy a can of cold beer and pack a bag of free ice at Vivo Gaint to keep your beer cold and then buy some roasted duck nearby stall.

    Give the man a Tiger! Fanastic view!

    Simplify our life style then can choose $4000 per month instead of $5000

    hee hee!

  2. 4k per mth for me plus many pints of beer to go along :)

    I guess if the salary different is not as big as in your first question, many will choose a job you like.

  3. Hi Yihhtan

    I agree that many people would choose the same option as you do given the choice :)
