The first kind is simply to spend all your time eating and sleeping.
The second is to tell yourself, “Someone like me will never manage to perfect themselves.” Then you stop trying.
The third kind is to waste your life on tasks of secondary importance. You spend all your time trying to resolve minor problems, one after another in an endless sequence. You tell yourself that once you’ve finished this or that project you’ll start giving some meaning to your life.

“To walk along the lonely street of dreams
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
And I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time”

At first, is it possible to make a living by doing what you love?
Yes. It is possible.
But it will require serious discipline with your time. You will need the fullsupport of your family.
Step 1: Find Your Passion.
You won’t know your passion until you’ve tried it for a while. Your passion may be something you can’t possibly know at this point in your life.
Just assess your general interests. Look to the intersection of your two primary interests.
Use your day job to support this period of exploration and practice.
Step 2: Set a consistent scheduleand stick to it.
Whether you spend 1 hour or 4 hours a day, be committed and be consistent.
Step 3: Build a portfolio and startworking with clients (or selling).
Think of an adequate number of portfolio items—double it.
Step 4: Save every bit of money fromclient work (or sales).
This is the money you use toturn your passion to a fulltimepursuit.
Step 5: There is never going to be a “perfect time” to make the jump.
There will always be a “leap of faith” moment.
