| Ants |
I suspect there may be something more out there uttered the wise and elderly philosopher ant - lifting his heavy head and enormous jaws, antennas wavering toward distant stars. ;-)

Michael, You are right, it is best to avoid any "ant acquainted' approaches like thinking too small. ;-) Aaron Wolfson

| balance |
For me, it may be a little different. I enjoy my "day job", because I am interacting with people, and generally feel like I'm making an important difference in their lives. The time I later have to work on my projects becomes my personal place of escape, and as a result, find myself being more creative than I otherwise might be. I was able to condense my day job into 4 days a week, which frees up more time for my "other career." I discovered that I need the contact with people to fuel me to be immersed in my writing projects. It's kind of a balance of sorts. Everyone needs to find that point for themselves. And believe me, I am still learning.

| quit the day job? |
Most people will never quit the day job because they don't have the guts to. And because they haven't done what's needed to create an income as an artist to succeed. That's all there is to it.

| Much ingredients makes good soup... |
Hi Michael! I am multi-creating to make an income, but also I think it all adds to my music and writing. All the different stimulous causes me to sense more...create more. Today I get to be home all day. Wrote a song last night in the evening, and now I have two in my head to write today...so...It feels good.:-) Have a great day!! Rachel

| empowerment |
There is difference between being empowerment and relying on somebody for every little thing in your life. Dangerous can be a symbiotic relationship. this often comes under the label of empowering an inspiring but if the person is being totally supported .financially and emotionally by another person that actually paralyze the person who may be aa genius to do anything at all, no less his or her best work. I have to say this was the case of my brother and my mother. Only when she died this past December to see actually get his genius going. Less tba a month later he had a laser show installed in the at age sixty there. Its hard but sometimes its best to refuse "help."

| Day Job |
My day job IS my passion. Occasionally, it seems like it is quitting me! I am not going to let it. Oh, and he spells it Stephen (I know you know that).
Thanks for the correction Peter:-) —Michael

| Time management |
It comes down to time management. Go through a week of nights and list what you do. YOu'll be surprised that you may spend two hours or more in front of the TV. If you were to use that time to pursue your passion, you will acheive your dream, or at least know if that is a dream worth pursuing.

| trapped! |
I started a small company 7-years ago. It pays me a good salary, supports 4 employees, and serves our customers well. Problem is, I want out, so I can persue acting, writing, singing. But I've created my own prison. It's not really a "saleable" company and I don't feel I can just quit. I'm trapped!

| Still a checker |
My myrmecophilous day job does help me at the grocery store. But I am still doing my music at night. I DO plan to quit my job when the expanding music career pays off. Thanks for the vocabulary lesson.

I recently quit my day job, took in a roommate to help with money, and am focused on my acting. Since then, I find I identify myself 100% with my acting and not my day job. The clarity has made me a better actor.
