I had a fun dream last night – the day that my full-time job is not my main income. I was thinking to myself if I would still keep my job if it was no longer my largest income stream. I thought how great it would be to not need my salary as income, but then I also thought that there is no reason to give up my salary either if I don’t need to.
Let me give you some stats:
- I work 40-50 hours a week at my salaried job.
- Right now my side incomes generate only about 15% of my total monthly income, not including my wife’s salary.
- I spend roughly 10 hours a week on my side projects.
Another big thought was what would I do with myself if I didn’t have to get up and go to work everyday. I feel like I would get bored, and I also would probably become less productive with my side projects, such as blogging.
So, in the end, I don’t think that I would leave my day job, even if my blogging covered everything and more. Since I enjoy my job, I think it would be too hard to leave to just do nothing. Plus, I don’t know how I’d fill my time.
Readers, what are you thoughts? What would you do if your side incomes exceeded your primary income?
