This is funny and thought-provoking. I met the author of the story yesterday - completely worth your 3 minutes.

All 3 of these links have the clip; the facebook one is the best.

yes, the story (not the video) has been going round the internet for years, but the main character was not an MBA graduate, just a business man.

Very famous story, has been around for years indeed. It's a good story, but it still remains very cliché.

Moreover, I'm doing an MBA because I don't like fish.

yeah, it's a very old story. it's actually archtypical - it can be found across many cultures and over many years.

it's a bit of a cliche, but it also seems like something that not enough MBAs think about. I know lots of folks headed into careers they don't really want, because of status or financial considerations. And i don't think it's just about the life balance / financial trade-off. Many friends - myself included - are heading into jobs without a strong sense of mission, hoping that we can re-find social or environmental purpose work further down the long. But is it a good idea to defer what matters? And when will we get back to what we want? Will we ever?

True. All those are very valid considerations of course, and it's hard to find your way. However, it's hard to work for something you're passionate about, so at one point you have to make a decision and launch yourself in a career where you could be successful and relatively happy if you can't be passionate about anything "accessible".

People talk a lot about having to be passionate about your work, but that's very difficult to obtain, if not impossible. Passion in work is overrated if you ask me; if you're interested enough in your job to make you go to work without moaning, it's good enough I reckon. You will always have time for "what matters" in your private life.

Hope this makes sense.
