I was listening to a podcast a while ago, and i noticed a really good point that the hosts shared. It was all based around the idea above.
There is a debate, a conflicting balance upon how much we should consume, and how much we should produce. Take for example, a woman who works a 9-5 job. Now, the majority of the population would see the evening and the morning as times to prepare the body and mind for work, or sleep. It may include the consumption of the news, or watching a good show on Netflix to pass the time before going to bed. Many would not consider this time to produce content of their own.
However, it is important to make your own content. Take this blog as an example. Before i started it, i would constantly consume content; from YouTube and all social media. Never had i considered the possibility of making my own stories and posts. Since i began this journey, my mind has expanded, to think of new ideas, which expand my ideologies of the world, and myself.
Does this concept apply to everyone; not completely. For the majority, the consumption of Twitter, Facebook and Television can be a way of resting the brain. But, for those who want to pursue higher levels of greatness; in their career and in their passion projects, producing more than which you consume is the best method.
Produce on TikTok, YouTube, Instagram.
Write your own blog.
Read a business book to expand your knowledge of the financial world, and apply it.
There are many things you can do to produce. What could you make? The possibilities are endless.
