don't follow your passion
Don’t follow your passion.
Have a day job 9-5 that brings you stability. Be really really good at. Specialise as a producer, so you can diversify as a consumer.
Then manically pursue your other interests/art in your free time.
You separate making an income from the act of creation.
This is the healthiest and happiest way to be a creative human being
Create for an audience of one. Yourself.
Whatever you make says nothing about you as a person.
When you release something (release a blog article/ post/music/ any art)- you should literally release it, let it go.
Everything you make is like a child building castles in the sand. Enjoy the process.
