We all need an outlet, somewhere to escape to where we think of nothing else but the outlet and if we’re lucky, all of our ideas percolate in the back of our heads.
And if they are not percolating in the back of our mind, you still need that outlet.
That outlet should not be a side hustle or a money making venture. It shouldn’t be something that focuses you to learn something new.
It shouldn’t require anyone and in most cases is better if it doesn’t so it can give you that moment of respite solely so you can deal with your outlet.
And enjoy it, that’s what an outlet is for, to enjoy and refresh yourself for what work you need to do next.
