Do you follow Austin Kleon?
He’s a writer and artist who’s work has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, PBS NewsHour, The Wall Street Journal and the art website 20×200.com.
He’s also published a couple of books and I want to share something from his (New York Times Bestseller) ‘Steal Like an Artist’. He talks about the importance of artist’s ‘side projects’; the stuff that we do for fun. He says that these side projects are actually “the good stuff” – and that this is when the magic happens.
That’s pretty interesting information and something to think about.
It reminds me of the quote (which he also includes in the chapter): “The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.” – Jessica Hische.
Now that really is something to think about!
