As you show your work to the world, do you do it because there’s something you need to reveal to the world, or do you do it because of money, fame, and glory?

Here’s what I am working for

I’d be upfront.

I like money. I do because it gives me the freedom to choose the other three (location, time, and intellectual). However, I do not produce work for the sole purpose of earning money.

Hallmark of great creatives

And you should not too. As Guy Kawasaki wrote in The Art of the Start 2.0:

Trust me, if you make meaning, you’ll probably also make money.

So, what are you working for?

Despite living the good life at midlife, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. My aim here is to reinvent midlife, learn new skills, and understand how the world works post-COVID.
