  1. Elizabeth Gilbert on Distinguishing Between Hobbies, Jobs, Careers, & Vocation - YouTube

    Good. Hands up who’s confused all four of those things and doesn’t know what they’re doing any more. (via Russell Davies)

  2. Scott Adams on success

    On why “follow your passion” is bad advice. I wish I could remember the tags I’ve used for this kind of thing before though.

  3. Find The Thing You’re Most Passionate About, Then Do It On Nights And Weekends For The Rest Of Your Life | The Onion - America’s Finest News Source

    “I can’t stress this enough: Do what you love…in between work commitments, and family commitments, and commitments that tend to pop up and take immediate precedence over doing the thing you love.” (via @secretbean)

  4. The Online Photographer: Set Those Expectations Low

    “Photography is a superb hobby, one of the best. It’s when you try to make a living at it that it is so likely to resist you. I don’t think other hobbies have this problem. I mean, consider, say, fly-fishing, or building plastic model planes. Very few people who do those things assume they’re going to ‘go pro’ someday. Very few people try. It doesn’t generally come up.”

  5. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Hobbies and Interests

    Lovely post on working out which pastimes you consistently enjoy, and what it is about them you love. “Free yourself of the ideas that don’t actually fit you, even if they’re ‘supposed’ to be central to the hobby.”

  6. Francis is » Four unusual hobbies

    Nice grouping of Urban Exploring, Space Hijackers, Confluencing and Guerilla Gardening. Good for the explanation at the end about what they have in common.
