Would you take a job that pays OK, or a job that you like?

And still regret to this day, because in the end salary does matter, but a having fun at what you do matters more.

Working must have the enjoyment too

Once you know what you like, then I'd start exploring for better jobs...but to be honest, it's all about balance. So a little bit of both is realistic.

But in the past I did a job that didn't payed OK, but I liked it very much. So I worked for a few years, while I wasn't payed well enough. But this job looks good on my curriculum vitae, so I don't complain.

And I like to be different, Im choosing the 2nd one "I will take the job that I really like". I have worked at places that pays you good but I hated the job so much it made me so depressed! So what's the point of making yourself all depressed just for that little money?! I now work at an amazing place where the pay is okay but I can't go on holiday for twice a year lol, I love my job so much <3 people thinks it's crazy I choose my work over any holidays!

Case 2 everything being equal but in a positive ways. Both have potential for advancement, have learning opportunities, great co-workers, then go the the one that pays less. You'll being doing something you love and will advance b/c you like it and do well in it.

so getting a job you like is better. At least you are happier.

If you want professional success then I am sorry my friend but you'll have to suck it up. Try to find the best job, meet people, connect, climb the corporate ladder, but by all means stay in the machine. Yes, dropping everything to pursue your hobby could turn you into the next multi-billionaire, but it is unlikely.
If your job is too painfully boring, then you're probably sitting on the wrong chair. Try something different, get a certification or two, or change industry if you think this could help you.
On the other hand, if you have no spouse and no children to care for, perhaps this is the only time in your life when you can make mistakes and be the only one to pay for them. In that case, go ahead and make them. Focus on your hobby, build motorcycles out of refrigerators, grow daisies, live on tuna cans for the next year or two. You can still do it. If you'll go back to the corporate world at least you'll have a story or two to tell your colleagues at the coffee machine. Of course by then you'll need work double shifts to make up for those years you lost growing daisies.
Either way, just choose something. Sitting there wondering "what if" won't do you any good.
