You must abstain from consuming to create

We were built to create. However, in our modern day (and especially the US), we are taught that we are here to consume. We must stop consuming so we can start creating. 

Try consuming less of the following:

  • Media
  • News
  • Email
  • Shopping
  • Surfing the web

So you can create something like:

  • Deeper relationships
  • Art
  • Value for others
  • Goodwill
  • Develop new talents
  • A new business
  • A plan

Sometimes it is easier to abstain completely than to try to consume in moderation. Try abstaining from your phone or news for an hour, a day, a week, or a month, and when you do, decide what else you’d like to create in that time.
