Doing a job you like is more important than a job that will get you more money, because, for a first, you may not be happy doing the job that gets you more money. In that case, you might not work very hard, and you will get fired, not having a job at all.

If you need to do a job to get money you wouldn't care if it makes you happy. For people who need money happiness if one of the least priorities.

Just because you are getting more money, means you are being successful. You can become very stressed with the job that gets you money, but you dont like, can get you very stressed. Some times, in very bad cases, stress can lead to suicide. Im not saying most people will, most people wont. But stress can be a very bad condition.

Although you may get stressed you can get a lot more money. If you get stressed you can take a vacation. and get unstressed is that a word well it is now. Then you can still get a lot more money. you can also have a normal life if you need money. and if you need money you don't stress about stress.

If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”

If you really REALLY need money do you really need happyness? If you dont need that much money you can have a job that lets you do more of what you want to do But, if you always get what you want and never let yourself not be happy it will be harder when you do get a promotion and you stop doing what you want to do.

Aaah, the Artist starving for his Art syndrome.No you shouldn't take a job you literally can't afford to do.When you can't pay for decent food,clothes,a place to live or medical insurance.When you spend 4 hrs a day commuting to your wonderfull job how long before the blindfold slips from your eyes?A job you don't like?.There is no such thing.No work is demeaning,no job is not worth doing and doing to the best of your ability and therein lies the rub.Why would you spend 1/3 of your life working for nothing but a warm,fuzzy feeling.
