Excuses for not Finding Creative Time and the Reality Check
Excuse:As we grow older, people start to focus most of their attention on their job, and society teaches us that a job is hard and strict with rules. Reality: You can have fun at any job, it’s all about your mindset, and you can use off time for creative explorations.
