It goes back to the definition of a good job, which is, if you could afford to, would you do the same work for free? If you would, you've got a great job -- if not, what the heck are you doing? -- you're going to be dead a long time. We're in a field that allows you to look forward to that work, not watch the clock, be creative, and even get paid for it. I've often thought I make a living from my hobby.” -- David Carson
