I have a lot of goals and aspirations. I've always had a ‘side project’ in the works one way or another. One of the reasons nothing much has ever come of any of them is I sabotage myself.
I am a firm believer that everyone should have a (or some) personal project(s) that consume a small percentage of their time. I'm not talking about home projects like cleaning the garage or building that shelf in the utility room. I am talking about side gigs, a passion project - something you enjoy doing outside of your job that already makes a little extra money, or could real soon.
