Practical vs Passionate

Is it better to FIRST pursue a business you’re passionate in or one that’s more practical.

For instance, Elon Musk is clearly passionate about rocketry (moreso making humans multi-planetary) but its just not feasible/possible to start a rocket startup (or an electric car startup, or a tunneling startup, etc.). Instead Elon started with Zip2 (something i know he wasn’t extremely passionate about). Zip2 gave him the foundation to pursue his major ambitions thouugh which brings us back to my main question. 

Is it better to FIRST do what your passionate about
