Side Hustles as Art

Creative itches need to be scratched or they drive you crazy.

If you paint, sculpt, write, have lots of ideas for things you want to build or whatever, you need to get your ideas out of your head and into the world.

If you’re a creative person, that feeling shouldn’t be ignored.

The challenge is finding the discipline to control the animal inside. To tame yourself, and your ideas, long enough so that you can actually make them real.

Side hustles are a form of art. You know you want to create…

But finding time to build something from scratch is a hard, painful slog of discipline and practice.

No rewards. No acknowledgement. No publicity.

All internal.

It may be the hardest thing you’ll ever do. Cross the threshold. And if you didn’t probably value freedom over money, you probably wouldn’t be in the situation you’re in now…

Sure. You know money is important. You’re not delusional.

And you know anyone who says money is NOT important is smoking something (and they’ll probably come crawling back to you looking for a job when they grow up or sober up).

But if you can attain freedom, it is worth much more than just money.

Freedom means you have mastered your ability to create by mastering yourself.

Freedom means you are not a slave to debt, or to an external master, or to the demons inside you.

Someone who has mastered themselves is free because they can make money again and again… 

Regardless of their situation.
