Many people with jobs have a fantasy about all the amazing things they would do if they didn’t need to work. In reality, if they had the drive and commitment to do actually do those things, they wouldn’t let a job get in the way
Paul Buchheit (via Signal vs. Noise)
I share this not because I necessarily agree with it, but simply to give me the excuse to point out that if I didn’t need to work then I wouldn’t be wasting all my free time trying to do things.
