Spend More Time Creating, Less Time Consuming

Daily creation is extremely important, not only for progress, but for the enjoyment of life. But don't forget to take care of what you already have. Maintenance and conservation is just as important. Keep going and move forward, but do the upkeep as well.

What's your daily create/consume ratio? If it's 100/0 you're busy creating something all the time. Some consumption might be beneficial, even from a makers perspective: If you're creating for consumption, you must understand the other side, and by consuming you will get the consumer's perspective. Creation can be done without the intention for later consumption. If you're writing a diary, or drawing art in the sand, the purpose might not be for consumption of self and others, but for the pure enjoyment of creating something, and if it's lost forever it does not matter. The value of the creation process was the process itself. But if you're creating for business, and not for your own pleasure, should probably be conscious about the consuming side of things. If your create/consume ratio is 0/100, you might be wasting your life away, or you've just reached a point in your life where you feel it's time to indulge in shameless consumption. There's no perfect ratio, anything between 100/0 to 0/100 can be right. It depends on who you are and what you want to do with your life. If you intend to build wealth and get rich, you'll probably need to spend more time as a maker through your own effort or through leverage from your current wealth.

Create your future. You can't predict the future, but you sort of almost can; As Peter Drucker wrote: "The best way to predict the future is to create it".

If you're learning, you might not be creating. Technically, you're creating associations in your brain, you're creating new knowledge in your head, you're creating options for your future. And if you're learning by doing, you might create new knowledge, learn something that has been previously unknown to mankind. But is it better to spend time learning than creating? Julius Caesar didn't think so. He said: "It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life."

Creation of business. Building a company is a process of creating things. If you're in business and you don't create, you'll be out of business very soon. Elon Musk compared creating a business to baking a cake. "You have to have all the ingredients in the right proportion."

Spend More Time Thinking, Less Time Creating

If you spend all your time actually creating, is there still room for thinking?

The create/consume is a false dichotomy, if it suggests those are the only two things you can do in life. You have infinite opportunities. Well, not literally, but you do have a lot of opportunity besides creating and consuming.

One thing you could do, is to think. Just sit, and think. Or act and think. Or think before you act. Actually, one thing you cannot do, is not think. But still, active thinking might require awareness of thinking, setting aside time to think.

You might spend more time thinking and less time creating, and yet end up creating more than you would if you weren't thinking.

“I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.”
― Warren Buffett

Simultaneously consume and create. It's possible. The human body consumes energy while creating new cells. You consumption of ideas, products, services may be a part of the process of creating something. Just don't let this become a poor excuse for consuming things.
