I don’t necessarily disagree with you but having a kids/family does change the perspective about the necessity of having regular (predictable) income. I have done lots of side work, have been involved in startups and work in a business where creativity is a requirement. Some people are the type to put in their 9–5 day & then forget about it…some of us love what we do and have to constantly learn/study/work to move forward. I still have a monthly pay check but I can move to companies where I’m happier, get paid more, have better social interaction with coworkers, etc….that is up to me and how hard I work to get where I want to be. So….it really comes down to you and being in control of your own career.
