Money or job satisfaction? Which is more important?

It depends on a variety of factors such as how old you are, how long do you plan to do the job for, what is your current financial situation, what are your plans for the next decade of your life.

Many people believe that you have to pick between the two, but in reality they are both equally as important. The ideal situation would be finding a job you love and getting paid a great salary for it, but unfortunately not many are fortunate enough to have both. 

If you are young, money is porbably more important than the job satisfaction. If you want to build something for yourself, you need to own things such as a house, a car, to be able to provide for the family you're building.

The older you get, these basic needs are usually covered and there's no longer a need to push yourself as hard just for the sake of having more things. More things don't bring you much value later in life. Most people shift their priorities as they progress in life. The important part is to try things and see how you feel about them, that's how you learn about yourself and what you consider important in life.

Not everybody is meant to work 5 days a week for 8-9 hours a day. 

In this generation we want the best of both worlds. We need to pursue money but at the same time we want to know that we are making a positive impact and ding what fulfills us internally. 

At the end of the day, money is not the be all and the end all of life. Once you have your minimum needs covered, the world is your oyster.
