+1 If that were true, most people would be screwed. We can't all work in a field or position we're passionate about, some of us just need a paycheck so we can find our purpose and passion on our days off.

I've always found it funny how people talk about dead end jobs as if they're the only ones that lack purpose and all the other jobs have it. When in reality, the jobs that lack purpose far outnumber the jobs that have it, and that includes some really "respectable" and "high-profile" jobs.

I find that simultaneously saddening and comforting.

Exactly. My father was a doctor. It's important work and I believe he found it fulfilling to help people, but it wasn't his consuming passion nor was it his purpose in life. He also loves traveling, reading, gardening, seeing more of his family and taking tons of naps - all of which he's enjoyed enormously since he retired. LIFE is his purpose in life.

I think people who go on about one's job being one's purpose in life are either incredibly lucky in their choice of careers or incredibly naive.
