The next great idea

My brother called me last week and said, "You're a great writer, if you could just come up with that million dollar idea." I thanked him for his encouragement and wondered what he thought I was trying to do - write any crazy thought that came into my head without pondering, praying, and hoping that it was the right idea to hit the market at exactly the right time? Most writer's conferences and workshops I've attended preach to write what you're passionate about and not write to the market, but there definitely has to be a balance. Have you ever forced yourself to write (or in a different career spend your valuable time on) something because you think (or know) it's going to be a good career move? Did it cheapen the experience or was it worth it in the end?
