When you work on side projects


When you work on side projects you not only get to explore talents and topics you might otherwise not get to explore, you learn things about yourself and the world outside of your immediate field of vision.

Even if what you work on after hours isn’t profitable, or polished and perfect, or something you want to spend your entire life doing, you can learn a lot about who you are and how you work by working on side projects.

I could say more about it, but instead I’ll direct you to this short video of Tina Roth Eisenberg discussing the power of side projects.
