Worthwhile Risks

The Worthwhile blog has been excellent lately -- Evelyn's post a few weeks ago talks about taking risks to pursue the right kinds of work:
"Sometimes we make bets on our futures. We decide that the future's so bright we need shades, rather than going nowhere. We grow, rather than stagnate. We engage questions, rather than edicts. And we'll even take a job with a riskier, less-well-paying company to do vitally fulfilling work."
She also finishes off with a a question/challenge:
"How about you? Have you ever left a position to continue to grow and innovate? Or, gasp, even work pro bono because you were passionate about the vision (only because we're bootstrapping; I don't condone lining other's pockets on my sweat)?"
