It took me years to understand this – to not feel guilty about how I choose to live and be productive.
I love working and writing, but I also love laying in bed and listening to music for half an hour. Just thinking.
I live by these words: If it makes you happy, it’s not a waste of time.
And what makes me happy is working on my terms – which is why I became a writer in the first place.
If I listen to what others say (“hustle every day, don’t take breaks, always improve yourself”), I might as well be working a nine to five with a boss.
This is YOUR life. MY life. I’m going to live it in a way that makes me happy.
Great message, Tom Kuegler!
