I'm gonna be honest: When someone says “do what you love," I usually roll my eyes and assume they've been to one too many Burning Mans or stumbled into family wealth. It's a phrase that's become so fetishized in recent years that it's hard to remember it has real meaning — and more importantly, requires real sacrifice. In this great TEDx Talk, Adam Baker doles out some tough advice that suggests doing what you love is possible, but only if you're willing to give up what you don't need.

If you were inspired by this TEDx Talk, I recommend immediately watching this music video. Because Annie Lennox.
