GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Who hasn't been told by a parent or a teacher, "when choosing a career, do what you love." New York Times bestselling author and former Yahoo! exec Tim Sanders says that advice is bad, very bad.
In his new book, "Today We Are Rich," Sanders argues that one needs to follow a purpose and relegate passions to hobbies and that those who offer "do what you love" as advice are wrong. In some very rare cases, there's purpose and passion at the same time, but it's unlikely.
Sanders says maturity only occurs when one gives up pursuit of self and gives into the command of service.
Sanders, CEO of Deeper Media, an online advice content company, is also the bestselling author of "Love is the Killer App."
