“You might have to look for more than one passion. Some passions may afford a career and some may not. That doesn’t change the fact that if you love golf passionately you should play whenever you can. You’ll get pleasure out of it and that may be enough. If you need to put a roof over your head and food on the table, then look for another passion. But look for another passion. Don’t look for a regular job and hope that on the weekend you enjoy golf enough to get you through the whole week. Living for the weekend is a grisly thing. I have trouble imagining a life in which you live for the weekend: two of seven days you have a life and the other five days you wait to have a life.
We live in a world where people think that finding a passion is so rare that if you find one you’re the luckiest person on the planet and the possibility of finding two is just bizarre. It isn’t. We have multiple passions. Once you taste how sweet it is, you’ll want it more.” – Larry Smith from this Forbes interview
