Doing things for their own sake

This made me think.

Basically, a woman took thousands of amazing photos over her lifetime, but either never showed them to anyone, or just to close friends. This is seen as shocking.

This is not a tragedy. This is life. Many people are amazingly talented and not famous. Fame isn’t the point. Now, being famous is not automatically bad, just like being rich isn’t automatically bad. We do things because they are fun, or important, or meaningful. We should not do things just because they make money or could make us famous.

This is lost on many people.
