The commercial spaceflight business

can be summed up as very basic mundane services making money to fund brief trips to space that haven't made money. It takes tremendous focus to dream of space travel, yet focus every hour of every day on the mundane businesses of home networking & financial services so you can one day have a brief adventure in space. Every space tourist had to be very successful in financial services, home networking, basic computer science, so they could afford to fly in space.

In order for Elon Musk to play with rockets, he had to spend many years perfecting Paypal, focus on the mundane task of setting up merchant accounts, wire transfer money using the internet, figure out the concept of withholding payment below a minimum balance.

Most people are very good at not doing their hobby for a living. They have a "work hard play hard" mentality, focusing intensely on something very mundane in the faith that it's someday going to fund a better hobby. They have been the most successful.

Some people are not good at compartmentalizing. They have a "play hard play hard" mentality & have been the least successful. They grow manes & write blog posts all day.
