The Truest Advice No One Ever Takes


So today, I pass along the truest advice no one ever takes – if you’re feeling bored, sad, frustrated, or just sick of the same old thing…get a hobby. I know you’re sticking your thumbs in your eye sockets right now, but humor me. Learning taxidermy might not fix whatever’s broken in your life, but learning puppetry actually could.

    So true! Find a hobby that is very different from what you do for a living. Start something you were interested in when you were younger but never got around to it. Never learned to ride a motorcycle when you were young? Why not take class now? You can't go back in time, and the classes won't be easier or cheaper in five years. I wrote my first science fiction novel at 43. It wasn't prize winning material, but at least I learned how to do it and did it. My recent writing efforts have been much better, almost professional I dare say.
