I grew up watching TV. I would spend the whole day watching cartoons.
Then came the computer. I spent every day playing games on that thing.
Then came the internet where I spent time on social media.
Then the smartphone news feed took over everything.
As it turns out, 90% of my life is spent on consuming media.
Let’s fix that.
Let’s start creating more and consuming less.
- News feed
- Binge watching
- Conspiracy Theories
Anytime you feel like you are consuming on “auto-pilot“, you have nothing else to do, stop! And rethink what you are doing. When in doubt, get up turn your phone away and walk around.
- Books (fiction and non-fiction)
- Videos, and courses from great people
- Biographies of top people
- New inventions
- 1 on 1 conversation
It’s easier said than done when I have been doing this for my entire life. But have to start small and build a habit.
A word on creating content:
Don’t put out garbage into the world.
Create something that helps someone out there.
