Over the past few months, I have spent a great deal of time paying attention to my habits, instincts and inclinations. Understanding my nuanced preferences for how I best spend my time has been very interesting.
One thing I have been paying close attention to is, specifically, my balance between creation and consumption. I find this wavelength fluctuates greatly, depending on the season, my priorities, etc.
There are times where I am in create mode — launching products, talking to new people, building things.
And then there are time where I am in consumer mode, constantly reading new things, etc.
Both are valuable tools for growth, but which one should I be focused on.
I think, if I follow my curiosity, I will naturally do both, often.
One thing I do want to avoid is being too much of a consumer. I do not want to be a product of the corporate machine, scrolling through newsfeeds all my life.
I think it is, perhaps now more than ever before, easy to fall into that washing machine cycle and never get out.
