How many ideas do you have on your list of side projects you’d like to build someday? My list has 25 items on it right now. They range from courses to books to software projects, but 25 seems conservative to me. I bet you’d have more than that if you sat down and counted them all out.
It’s not a bad thing to want to work on side projects. Craigslist started as a side project. So did Basecamp. So did Instapaper. Look at where they are now. Side projects can be the starting point for building a whole company.
