The possible psychology of a worker with a Monday to Friday job and the weekend off:
Saturday = „Great! It’s weekend.“ (He/She realizes it’s weekend)
Sunday = „Yeah! I can do whatever I want!“ (He/She discovers new things inside him/her, explores, plays and toys around enjoying him-/herself.)
Monday-Friday = He/She loses his/her enthusiasm again. What was a colorful parrot on the weekend became a gray mouse again.
Repeats until 65 (or whatever the state thinks is the right age for pension).
@rdh Sure, a safe income is crucial for your well-being. But you can still build up assets that play in your favor and will make you money eventually. There's one guy I know personally, Sean McCabe, who wrote a book exactly about the topic of having the security of a day job but still "going wild" with your passion / art / craft. He calls this technique simply "Overlap". You can have a look here: https://overlapbook.com/ :)
