    Why would you not aim for a job that is both well-paid and rewarding?

    Because that well paid and rewarding job might be what they are passionate about and want to pursue.

    I would agree if you don't need to make any other sacrifices

    what do you mean by rewarding?
    someone might say that a well paid job is rewarding.... in terms of cash

    Depends how you define well-paid and how you define rewarding. Both are subjective.

    But I would say it's definitely possible, yes.

    Because when you're an adult you don't have much time for hobbies as you do when you're a kid...

    Also, your job is a ****ing big part of your life, at least a third of the time you spend living. So you better damn well enjoy that or no matter how much you're paid you ain't gonna enjoy life! At least me...

    I kind of get what you are saying, why not just go for money and then enjoy the leisure time? It's not so much the combination is bad but that it is rare, far easier to work as a high paid bin man than break into a rewarding and well-paid industry. The problem is a job consumes so much time, it depends on your attitude. Most people work to live, they go to work so they can get drunk on the evening and just enjoy life. Then there's people who work to live, workaholics who have no other life. Then there's the healthy balance.

    Because a job is what you are going to be spending the vast majority of your time doing. Why wouldn't you want it to be rewarding, lol?

    you have stated a good point but I would add that I don't think that hobby takes such a big chunk of time e.g. playing golf or tennis on the weekends/ I'd better agree with the previous opinion about that rewarding could be is how much you are paid as well

    I'm a composer, always have been.

    Both myself and my mother are self employed and working from home, the rest of the family is just 10 minutes up the road. And since I don't have any set working hours, I get up when I want, break when I want, nobody tells me what to do, I can't get fired, I make as much or as little money as I like depending on how much I feel like working that day and if I feel a bit *****y, I sit on the couch eating ice cream watching friends and family guy all day and nothing happens, I just do a bit more work the next day.

    Yep. Basically I just do what I'd probably be doing anyway, except I get paid to do it.
