Author Junot Díaz captured the line between creating and consuming in his advice to aspiring writers: "Read more than you write, live more than you read."
A writer who never reads probably won't be a great writer. However, there is a point when consumption stops to inspire and becomes problematic. We should also create, not just follow along.
There's enough content out there to fill our time for the rest of our lives. Spending large amounts of time reading articles or absorbing self-help books feels productive. And it is - up to a point. If you only consume, it's time for a change.
Jack Butcher said in a tweet, "If you have time to consume, you have time to produce." Turn your newly discovered knowledge into action.
Antony Moore writes that "the rich, wealthy, and successful are the minority. If you want to be in that minority, you need to switch teams and join those with a producer mindset."
Switching from a consumer to a producer can feel daunting, and we can find reasons why we can't start. Start producing, and know that the obstacles are part of the process.
The majority of people will rather dream about things instead of strategising how to make them a reality.
Instead of just reading about something that interests you, think about what you like about it and see how you can make it work for you. Create systems to break down large goals into actionable steps. This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
When we think of creating, we often search for the most significant examples. Google. The printing press. Nikola Tesla. Our output doesn't have to change the world.
Creating is not limited to building something big. It can be writing a blog post, working on a knitting project, or cooking a meal. Maybe it's improving a skill. Creating is about being active instead of passive. Put things in the world, and see how it changes things for you.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
