Create vs. consume

There’s a mantra for writers that says one can only be a good writer if he or she writes lots, but reads even more. Some Japanse painters observe for hours, only to paint the object in mere minutes. Others, argue you can only become good by doing, whatever the skill.

Whatever the balance, or theory, you believe in, it helps to be conscious about how much you consume, and how much you create.

Ask yourself: Are you the kind of person who says ‘I can’t wait until this is released’, or ‘I want more of this’, or, are you the kind of person who goes and makes it in the first place?
