Why only consuming isn't enough?

You could have consumed every great information in the world but still you would feel emptiness deep down as only consuming won't move the needle to the desired results

However, creating will!

This shift in mindset would  

  • Give the desired results 
  • Give you more fulfillment
  • Give you an opportunity to share your point of view to the world

The line between creating and consuming

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."

1. Never leave home without a book

If you don’t have a book on hand, it’s hard to read a book. So take one with you wherever you go. This may be inconvenient if you don’t carry a bag or purse around all the time, it is recommended an e-reader such as the Kindle and its associated apps.
