Here is why creative people are often miserable.
Tell them about it when they seek your advice.
From the video:
“If you happen to be creative: find a way to make money and then practise your craft on the side. Because you will starve to death otherwise. For some of you, that is not true. But that is a tiny minority. The best way is to find a job that keeps body and soul together. And parse off some time to pursue your creative thing.”
