Happiness generally isn't about making more money, but rather freedom. The freedom to say no to things you don't want to do. The freedom to say no to people you don't like. The freedom to not feel like you are obligated to say "yes." Freedom is saying yes when you want to.

Do what you need to do to have all the time and freedom in the world. Then use that time and freedom to do whatever you want. Conversely, find the overlap between what you love to do and what will earn you a living and do that from the beginning.
