If you Google the phrase, “do what you love”, you would get a million hits. The views are split down the middle, into two camps - (1) the staunch believers who say, YES ABSOLUTELY DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND NEVER SETTLE (this includes technopreneur Steve Jobs and philosopher Alan Watts), and (2) the pragmatists who say ‘do what you love’ is fluffy advice - bite the bullet and go work hard at something until you’re good enough to be passionate about it.
