Passion Vs. Hobby: Which One Is A Better Career Choice?

As someone who’s decided to follow a career in journalism, I am often asked: why do you want to be a journalist? The answer for me is simply because I want to pursue my passion: writing about the things that matter.

Though I generally get that what are you thinking? look when I answer this question, I tend to think about a quote from the late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

Late Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple.

It goes without saying that our emotional happiness in the workplace matters, and how can you be unhappy if you’re doing something you love doing? This can get tricky.

It’s easy for people to say they are passionate about X when they really like doing X, but a lot of the times this so-called passion is merely a hobby, and that’s probably not a good thing to pursue.

I’m not saying hobbies can’t be turned into careers, but I am suggesting for you to tread carefully because:


Passion vs. Hobby

Ask yourself, what were some of the things you thought you were passionate about when you were younger?

Now, think about the things you’re passionate about now. Are they any different?

Chances are your passions have changed, right? That’s because they weren’t passions.

They were merely interests or hobbies that entertained you or were leisurely activities you simply enjoyed.

I’ve already pointed out, hobbies change, which is why it’s important to make this distinction early on before attempting to turn your hobby into a career.


What About Passion?

They’re a strong interest for something. If you have a passion for something, you’re spending all, if not most, of your free time on your passion.

Strengthening it in any way you can, and always thinking about what you’re going to do next with it.

It’s hard to want to stop doing something you truly love when you don’t ever want to stop doing it.

When you have a passion you’re not afraid to work for it. This is where passion trumps hobbies the most.

Pursuing your passion is more than likely going to take some time and it’s going to take a lot of effort.

It will be easier to give up on your career goals if you’re not willing to put in the hours or the work, and no one is going to do this for something that’s only a mere interest like a hobby.

So the next time you think you love something and should make a career out of it, sit down and really think about whether you really love it or simply like it.
