Is it really important to have passion in doing your jobs?

I was wondering if some people can just set their mind to do the work they are assigned to and don't fret about it. People who love their job are happier than those who doesn't. I am confused between choosing the job or course my parents asked me to or the one which I really love.

You should work at what YOU are happiest at, but sometimes economics prevail, and you must "settle" for more money, and put up with a job you don't necessarily like, but can perform satisfactorily. A good attitude helps a lot in this situation! :)

Depends on if you have a back up job in case the dream job fails. Or a degree or trade in something else, cause dream jobs like actors, sports, your own business, or something competitive like sales might not work out so hopefully you are trained in something else to fall back on. Goodluck

You should choose the job that you want.Choosing for your parents isn't going to make you happy. I like my job,but don't love it.I just have a "I have to do what I have to do" attitude.If you have the opportunity to find a job that you love,then do that.Do what you feel passionate about.

I would choose the one that I love to do since if you are going to a job just to please your parents, you will not like the job and if you do not like your job, your job performance will not be what it should be, which might result in you being terminated.

do what you love, I don't know any body who gave in to their parents and didn't regret it or have some doubts later in life Good Luck!
