The best work you'll ever accomplish will be that which is produced by your passion. It's the work that no one could ever pay you enough to complete, because it's driven from your creative core. Our greatest freedoms come when we're not bound by the expectations of someone else or bound by our work for hire. How many times are you willing to go back to that same place where you let someone else define your value, hoping that this year's raise will finally be a true reflection of your worth? It will never happen, pull your head out.
