Biased to What Pays the Rent

Let’s face it; if you want to be creative, you need certain things to be aligned in your life. You need not to worry about money and you need time.

Thanks to the current economic situation, we are lucky if we find a job. It doesn’t necessarily have to be what you love, but at least it pays the rent. Young folks would do anything but to remain jobless. Some will go to work in customer service or sales, for example. This doesn’t mean that those who work on these particular jobs don’t love them. However, because these jobs are high in demand, they are abundant and a fresh graduate could easily get a job in those careers.

A positive thinker will say, “Why not? I will work and at the side I will do what I love. I will work on my special project; take extra courses or study to obtain higher educational degrees.” Ambitious youth will work on themselves to become better and to be able do what they love for money in such a harsh economy. Nevertheless, time is limited and when the time comes to choose between sparing your extra energy and time to do work that pays the rent or work that you actually want to do, you will always end up biased to do the work that pays the rent.

Gradually, if you lose sight, you might end up doing that same temporary job for a very long time and forget about what inspired you at the first place. Do what you love even if it’s for 10 minutes a day. Let it remind you why you are where you are.
