Today is the last day of the seven-day writing challenge that I’m participating in. I’ve successfully written seven blog posts (including this one) in a row. Taking the time each day to sit down has taught me two things:
There’s magic in repetition
You can’t wait for things to be perfect before you get started
If you want to get things done, you just have to sit down and do the work.
In one of his recent snapchats, one of my favorite photographers, SamTheCobra, talked briefly about what creativity meant to him. I really dug his perspective, so I’m adapting his concept for today’s post on finding your purpose.
Finding your purpose is a matter of connecting the dots, where the dots in your life fit under three categories: the things you do, the places you go, and the people you hang out with.
So many of us want to achieve greatness, but we feel like we can’t because our jobs get in the way. And sometimes, quitting your job just isn’t an option. What’s important is recognizing that working full-time doesn’t have to prevent you from doing creative work. You just need to learn the art of the side hustle.
