Today at lunch, I was talking to my coworkers. I brought up the point, of how, at a certain age, there are no expectations for you at all.
You can’t rebel against zero expectations. You can’t go along with expectations, when there are none.
Then, what is the best course of action?
Someone once said, “You should always be working on your best idea.”. It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on my best idea. I would love to work on it.
I’ve been focusing lately on maximizing my creativity output, and exploring creatively. This has been so relaxing and freeing, but I feel so compelled to create when I’m locked up at work.
I don’t think a traditional career is a good balance for what I want to do.
I think the best plan of action is to find a balance.
I have a highly desirable skill that I need to leverage.
If I leverage it, I can higher my pay rate, and then lessen the hours I work.
Then, in my extra time, I can pursue work on my best idea and create something worthwhile.
