Which is harder on you? Hard work for little pay or no work at all?

Work better. 4 option: 1. Do what other tell you, 2. Do something until you find something better, 3. Do what you love, 4. Do nothing. #4 is the worse, #3 is the best. Most people are between #1 & #2. Doing 1, 2, 3 is much better than #4 (not working).
