You don’t have to be obsessed with something to be curious about it.
You do have to be obsessed with getting curios, or getting creative, or having the habit.
The obsession is with the compulsion for action.
Where exactly you focus however, does not need to be on one thing.
In a way, I’m obsessed with music.
I have been for… years. But the compulsion is in the curiosity. To find new music, revisit old stuff,and write/think/share it now.
Separating obsessions from what we act on matters.
The obsession becomes a well we can revisit when we’re not sure what else to do, but they don’t become the only thing we every occupy ourselves with.
