The article explains why doing what one loves is a valid career strategy. First, workers have to offer something that technology or automation cannot replace or replicate. Second, with increasing globalization, workers must develop skills that are less routine and more difficult to outsource. Third, as more Americans enjoy economic prosperity, the market for new products and services also grows. The article notes that although intrinsically motivated professions may not be lucrative initially, these are valid options the new labor market could explore.
