Paul Graham on “Doing What You Love”

“The fact is, almost anyone would rather, at any given moment, float about the Caribbean, or have sex, or eat some delicious food, than work on hard problems. The rule about doing what you love assumes a certain length of time. It doesn’t mean, do what will make you happiest this second, but what will make you happiest over some longer period, like a week or a month.”
