I think the whole point is not to wait for anything to come along and just go get it"It's better to live a short life doing what you want than a long life doing what you don't like."
Only problem is, we never know, when the opportunity to do what we want, may come along,so we keep muddling along waiting for it to happen, especially when we know that money does matter.
D, what you say here is something I can really relate to as well.I will say though that that fundamental message hits the point of why I stopped gigging in musical situations I hated to be in playing the music I don't value.
Some people say - "great - more gigs for me". My response - "Great - take them! I hope you get rich doing them!"
