Did Steve Jobs give good advice? | The Moral Sciences Club | Big Think

Will Wilkinson on Steve Jobs’ advice:

“Find what you love and never settle for less” is an excellent recipe for frustration and poverty. “Reconcile yourself to the limits of your talent and temperament and find the most satisfactory compromise between what you love to do and what you need to do feed your children” is rather less stirring, but it’s much better advice.

It’s a sad fact of our world that most folks spend their lives working deeply unsatisfying jobs. It’s not that their ambitions are too lofty, but that their jobs are too menial. It’s a fact that should continue to give political philosophers pause.
