Supplying it all...

No single person nor any single aspect of your life can supply it all.

The joy. The meaning. The money. The support. The growth. The connection. The autonomy. Etc. etc.

Expecting a person -- or a job or a hobby or a pursuit -- to supply it all is setting yourself up for failure. (As unpopular as that assertion might be in some circles...)

Another strategy, as Chris Yeh calls it, is the portfolio strategy: make your life a portfolio of activities that, when added together provide you with everything that you're looking for.

This helps to take the pressure off of any single input without robbing you of anything that you need.

In other words -- don't put all of your eggs in one basket. Logical, if not popular.
