Why do all these inspirational ideas of "what we want to do" involve skydiving and exploring nature and all the other activities shown in the visuals of this video? Even in the narrative; living an outdoor life with horses.

What if some of us ENJOY a pleasant office life, a comfortable home, and a restful environment? This notion that the normal everyday world we live in is one that we're forced into, trapped in, yearning to escape, is utterly wrong for a vast number of people!

There are BILLIONS of people in the world SCREAMING and CRAVING for the kind of "dull" and "ininspired" lives us poor, unimaginative saps are currently living.

Not all of us think living a worthwhile life means climbing mountains and jumping off cliffs!

If money were no object, I wouldn't do anything. Now what?

This guy is full of sh*t. If everyone listened to him there would be no janitors because no one would clean sh*t up if they didn't need the money.

You wouldn't agree if your job was to count all that money by hand...without a money counting machine...or a wet sponge for your counting finger.

Otherwise, a brilliant video.

if money were no object. i would go back to my old job of shoveling sand and stone in a concrete factory. no one bugged me, great way to stay in shape and it is an honest living. so i guess if money were no object i would really just like to be left alone, lol.

@miasmat: yeah. It's all very romantic, but it rarely works out that "doing what you love" => food

this is bull. Live in reality. You need to pay with MONEY for food and rent. You have to earn money somehow. As much as you might like painting or writing or riding horses - you may not be able to earn a buck at it. I suppose there's always suicide rather than working in something that you really don't enjoy just so you can return home to a family or a passtime or whatever that you really do enjoy. Not everyone gets to make a million dollars by doing the very thing they love most. That's just not how it works unfortunately. Maybe you can be content always scraping and struggling to survive as long as you are doing what you love.. Maybe you can't. It's your choice. This guidance counselor should be informing people about what jobs are likely to provide security and future success. They can do all the rest of it as a sideline.

What if we breathed farts? What if we ate water and drank food? What if we didn't spend our time talking about pointless subjects?

I don't think I need to take life advice from someone that can't even tell the difference between the past subjunctive and the past indicative. This video should be entitled "What if money *were* no object?"

that's all very romantic but it hinges on one thing: if you're doing what you love and become and expert on it, "someone" will pay you to do it.

Funny, it doesn't always work that way. I should know, no one pays me to think about the order and mechanics of the universe, which is what I love and what I am trained to do; and even after all of the awards, all of the renown and all of the promises, no one is paying me and I still need to eat.

Maybe at some point I will be better off from science, but if I don't work on something I don't love but someone is paying me for, I won't make it to that day.

In my experience through years of being inside the scientific community, my story is not only not unique, it is far too common.

He's so right... so many people work to earn money and keep earning money but never really doing anything with it. Or earn money and save it to spend when they retire at which stage, they can't do the things they wanted to do when they were younger. Or those 'housewives of Orange County' - that have so much money and then sit in their big mansion all day b!tching about all their other rich friends...

Best choice is to learn to do something you love and then get paid for it. That way you're doing what you love 24/7.
