Something rings a bit off to me about this. Just because you aren't willing to grind yourself into the dirt working 70 hour weeks on someone else's project doesn't mean that you must lack an amazing passion for a craft that could be an enormous part of your life and your identity.

By the same token, working long hours doesn't intensify your accrual of experience, skill, or talent, nor does it automatically make you a better or more passionate developer.

Passion is passion. Craft is craft. Whether you spend 1 hour a day doing it or 17.
