I’m not here to defend my hobby of painting, and I’m not saying that it’s a bad hobby. I’m just saying that there is a whole lot of self-regarding, self-aware people out there and that they can be detrimental to our self-awareness.
If you’ve got a hobby, you’re not going to be that self-aware, but there are still some people out there who don’t know what it is to be self-aware, and their hobbies can be detrimental to their self-awareness. Those people are hobby people.
Hobby people can turn into hobby-haters, and then hobby-haters can turn into hobby-haters. It’s a vicious cycle. The more hobbies you have, the more people you have to deal with to get rid of them. One of the first things I learned in college was that I could work on a hobby of mine without giving it a second thought. And I still do. It’s like a reflex, and I’m not giving it any thought.
When you have no self-awareness, you can’t really tell if you’re doing something right or wrong, or if you’ve already been to the next step. You can be so self-aware that you don’t even know you’re doing something wrong. If you were trying to build a new computer out of a used one, you might think “Yeah, I’m going to buy that one” and then do it.
Not all hobby projects are successful, but Ive experienced people going out of business for a variety of reasons. Some of them just being too busy to work on their hobby, but others, like mine, it was just not an acceptable hobby for them to work on. Ive had the same problem myself.
The reason I think this is the best way to look at this is because of the fact that hobby projects can help you to grow as a person. You learn so much and feel so much better about yourself when you’re doing something that you have a passion for. In the case of mine, all I actually did was learn how to program, which is pretty much the same thing as doing a hobby project.
Now, as you can imagine, hobby projects are different from real projects in some ways. Real projects are usually about making a product or doing something that you enjoy, but hobby projects are about learning how to do something with your own hands without any expectation that your goal is to sell the project to someone.
Well, for me, my hobby projects were always the same, just in a different way. I did them because I enjoyed them. I wanted to do them because I had to. I knew that if I didn’t, I would get bored and give it up.
People who do hobby projects usually start out looking for a job that is in demand, as the only way to get a job is to make one (and there is usually a wage attached). Hobby projects are often a very good way to build your own skills so that you can continue to do the hobby project as a hobby. They are very good at it, and you can usually do it for a very reasonable price.
There is a lot of money involved if you just do hobby projects, and it seems as if there is the desire in the hobby world to make it easier to do hobby projects. If hobby projects are that easy to do for people, then why would anyone ever choose to do them? We have seen this many times over the years.
