The title is filled with irony. The author of the linked blog post nails the discussion.
#1) Life is more than work and measurable accomplishments
#2) Time and energy are limited resources–how you spend them says a lot about who you are as a person.
#3) Passion renews you energy. If you are lucky enough to have work (providing for your household) combined with your passion, hurray for you. If you do not have work and passion interconnected, like most people, enjoy your life and the trade offs that make you happy. It’s only the people with no passion we should feel sorry for. Arguing which passion is better, well that is just idiotic.
