Creating value is my hobby
I’ve never really had a hobby.
I read, I work out, I cook, but I don’t consider those hobbies. They’re more like necessities.
There isn't one activity I do just for myself, and I’m okay with that.
Everything I do, I try to turn it into something valuable for others.
And I don’t mean that everything I do is a scheme to make a quick buck. I don't ask:
How can I make money from doing XYZ?
Instead I ask:
How do I make XYZ beneficial for others?
The money will eventually come. But I can genuinely admit that a lot of my self-worth and satisfaction is tied into helping others. Specifically helping others to see they have more potential than they think.
A lot of people have hobbies. A lot of people would love to turn their hobby into a way of living. Start by asking yourself, who does this hobby serve?
If the answer is yourself, you’re not there yet. Find a way for your hobby to serve others. Then, and only then, can you ask yourself:
How can I turn this into a living?
