Elliott Hauser defines a hobby as “a specific activity, other than your primary pursuit, that allows you to develop mastery.” For example, casual reading is not a hobby, but the act of reading to become an expert in the history of German existentialist thought would be. Do you have serious hobbies? Lifelong casual pursuits? What would you define as your serious hobby? It’s all about purpose, in other words. Becoming serious about a hobby, actually prioritizing time and developing expertise can be daunting. But as Hauser suggests, serious hobbies should have an “almost professional feel to them,” even if you’re not getting paid to do it.
When you think about it like that-how seriously you would take a pursuit if you were getting paid-our simple hobbies can turn much more serious. The key, Hauser suggests, is depth.(S.Phiips nooga.com)
