Certainly some are born to dispositionally be more drawn to the work of an artist and poet.
But my guess is that most bureaucrats (most working adults) are simply addicted to their monthly salary.
Shirk that, if you can…
If you want to be an artist or poet, you have a decision to make.
It’s a decision that must be answered with daily action.
The good news is that: You get to decide who you become.
Just like poets and artists, bureaucrats are born, not made; it takes normal humans extraordinary effort to keep attention on such boring tasks.
