Sometimes a simple picture quote can be a powerful trigger to change your thinking or your behavior. Here is one I saw recently.

Find three hobbies you love:

One to make you money,

One to keep you in shape,

One to be creative.

First, I like the use of the word hobby. A hobby implies an activity that you do because you enjoy it not because you have to do it. Other words like job, vocation, and career, have different connotations and not all of them are positive.

A hobby starts with joy and interest and satisfaction. If you are clever about choosing a hobby, you can meet the criteria listed above. If you find a hobby that hits all three then you've got the trifecta. 

So now the hard part is to figure out whether I have my hobbies. 

One to make you money - I don't have this one yet, but I'm working on it. I need to work harder.

One to keep you in shape - There are two parts to this for me: diet and exercise. I've been working on diet as part of Project Food as Fuel. I don't know that I would classify the keto diet as a hobby (more like a lifestyle). The exercise one is a bit more elusive, but so far I would say bike riding is the closest thing I have right now.

One to be creative - Well this one is the easiest one. Without a doubt my hobby of writing every day is my creative outlet.

    @brandonwilson love this! Yes so true - simple yet powerful. I'm so writing a post about this.

    @brandonwilson - I like the simplicity of this.

    I think 1 and 3 can merge easily. Get money for writing.

    For #2 - what about - dancing, hiking, walking, running, martial arts, gardening ?

      @keni None of those physical activities really spark me. Remember, I'm the guy who still has nightmares about being back in PE class in high school.
