So, should the NINJA generation today cry about not being as lucky as the Baby Boomer generation (who did financially well, and control a significant percentage of personal financial assets and consumer spending in North America, as per sources), especially on their graduation day? Nah!

Why You Shouldn't "Do What Makes You Happy" in Business

There is an inherent flaw in the sentence "Do what makes you happy." People usually choose their initial career paths around the age of 18 -- does every person continue to enjoy doing the same for the rest of his or her life?Happiness is not my ultimate goal. Failure, however, is my ultimate deterrent. I simply do not want to live pay-cheque to pay-cheque in Canada or end up unsuccessful, a decade from now.
