Doing real work with actual value to society usually feels like you’ve been forced to compromise on your own ideals.
Less than ideal is the point.
Your willingness to compromise might result in a sale because it's a possibility that seeks to serve the audience, the market, the customer.
The natural tendency to serve oneself is the stumbling block which most of us have to overcome. Perhaps the world doesn't need more DJs. Perhaps it needs more teachers.
You’re just one person. You don’t have a monopoly on even the things you do best.
So go ahead, get out of the way and let others have their say in what your creative tools, abilities and habits manage to put out.
Maybe it's ideal. For them.
