Often times, you will work late. You will work weekends. You will work during lunch. During breakfast. When you would rather be watching a movie or hanging out with friends. You will work and you will work until you find something that works. You have to keep working until it works and you will probably have to work some more.
If you want freedom and you want to follow your passions wherever they take you, you must run it yourself. You have to make it work. If you can find a way to make yourself enjoy the work, it will be easier. It can be hard to enjoy busy work though and there will always be busy work. Either way, you have to do the work. Talk is just talk until you do the work, then talk can become tangible. Until you can point to something and say, “Look what I did” you haven’t done the work.
Set yourself loose and get to it. The only thing that can break through the chains that are holding your ideas down is work.
