What is Passion?
Passion might be deciding to do the work,
even when you don’t feel like it, or despite the hardships.
Money starts to change things,
and disrupts even the purest of intentions.
If you can’t change anything about your situation, you can always change your attitude.
So why do we take gigs?
Maybe Passion isn’t just the act of creating art…..it’s more about the lifestyle
Perhaps passion comes from your Intrinsic motivations (love for the art or lifestyle,or the reasons why you started). But the extrinsic motivators (money, resume building, prestige) sometimes complicate and disagree with your intrinsic motivations.
