Your Hobby and Work Really Do Go Hand-in-Hand
There is a lot of talk about people starting their own business based on a hobby. Jewelry making. Pottery. Sewing. Cabinet Building. Entrepreneur Magazine gives some great ideas on how to get started. But that’s not the only way to turn your hobby into a career. Your hobby and work can really help each other over time.
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a hobby as “a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation.” But I’ll tell you this:
My Job Fuels My Hobby.
And I love it. A hobby provides pleasure. It provides a sense of accomplishment. It is a way to relax.
My hobby is fixing up cars. My work is preventative maintenance on big rigs. My hobby and work really do go hand-in-hand.
Every day I am challenged to ensure these big rigs are ready to hit the road in top performance condition and every day I walk away with ideas that will help with my next hobby project.
While I am at work, I get to practice my skills and even learn new ways of tackling challenges that come along. Those skills really make me excel in my hobby. It’s a great thing to work in this environment because I really do love my hobby and work. To do what you love at work and to be able to take home ideas for my hobby is like a dream come true.
Anything from a simple tail light fix to a complicated engine repair keeps me on top of my game. So you can see how these go together so well.
Do you want your job to help you excel in your hobby?
