How important is it to like your job?

I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I am considering being a lawyer which makes good money and I think I would make a good one but I find it quite boring. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind going into a job related to sports marketing and business and I think I would enjoy this greatly but the salary is not great. Is it better to have a job that you love that makes little money or have a job you don't like very much that makes a lot of money? Thanks!

Waking up was a drag, getting ready for work was a drag, after work was a drag because I was stressed from my day and I knew I had to go back the... More
