Isn't that what they say?  Find your passion and live your dreams?  Pick the thing you absolutely love the most and do it?  Choose something, study it in insane detail and become the expert on it?

Well, I've got some bad news for you.  If you think you're going to spend…

True; however, we live in a materialistic society where monetary gain is
a must in order to survive. When that notion is considered then one
must work. Work and work related activities (e.g., work, rest, work
related orientation literature), often times, take the majority of one's
time. Therefore, I come to the conclusion that I have little time to
myself. So then, am I defined by the work I do to survive or do I define
myself based on the little time I have to myself to pursue my passions?
Some people might say "make your work your passion" and just like that
problem solved. Well take this example: I practiced martial arts
throughout my life, but lets face it I'm never going to be the next
Ultimate Fighting Champion (UFC) and make millions of dollars.

So
maybe neither of the above 2 questions are true. Sometimes I wish I did
have in such a society but someones gonna have to put bread on the
table-so I go out and work and it's like a vicious cycle of adapting to a
new job vs. fulfilling my passions and not doing anything at all vs.
finding motivation to get out and finding work.

Where does one find an equilibrium?

Passions and interests are so varied and so many for us gifted or multi-talented individuals.  And how we approach the diversity is also different.  I can get focused on one thing for a time and be completely immersed and then I'm done with that and ready to move on.  Sure I may return at a later date with a different twist, but time to move on.  I have a least six books going at one time.  I last in a job for about 2 -3 years and then am ready for a new adventure (sometimes changing jobs or responsibilities with the same company.  I also look at what is the common thread through lots of my interests – curiosity, adventure, learning something new, sharing, creating change and yeah some more details.  Knowing what part of the process I enjoy and what becomes mundane has been critical for me.  I like creating and finding solutions – not real into the day to day implementation.  I continue to discover what works for me.  Then I validate that discovery as OK for me.
