Inspiration Bits is a side-project. It lets me explore one of my creative sides that I don’t get a chance to tackle at work.
There is an off-chance that in the future this turns into a day job, but that’s not the goal. The goal us to explore creativity, inspiration, motivation, work, and life. The goal is to improve my writing skills, to connect with like-minded creatives, and most of all, to inspire people to take action.
And it’s been very rewarding in that regard, thanks to you. It helps me grow as a person, as a creative, and as a professional. And for a side-project, that’s more than good enough.
Having a side project or a hobby can make you happier, healthier, and more productive.
A side project is the thing you do that makes you happy, the thing you do that excites you, and it could, in the end, become the thing that puts food on your table.
Work hard for a couple of hours, and then call it quits. You’ll get the same amount done, you’ll be much less stressed, and you won’t burn yourself out.
Talk about your side projects whenever you get a chance. Start with the problem, talk about how you approached it, share the challenges you faced, express the outcome of your efforts, and end by defining what you’d do differently if you had to do it all over again.
The road to your best ideas and greatest successes will be riddled with failures, so muster up that courage and face your fears. It’s really important to put your work out there.
Until Next Week
