Effort and joy

I’m exploring this idea of doing more activities which feel like play. For my kid, I tried to implant an idea into his mind that to have great results he has to put great effort in learning some proper skills. So when he wants to learn roller skating, I remind him to put in hours of practice.

But then if he doesn’t enjoy it, what’s the point? I often feel like I’d like to learn a cool skill myself, until it comes to the practical part and I find myself bored and not wanting to do it. So when one can do anything and everything, what’s the point of following something you don’t really enjoy doing? Perhaps you’ll love the result more than the process?

Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative.
