On being a creator and consumer

I like to play games, but I don’t like to watch others play games.

I like to eat vegetables, but cultivating them is not something I want to spend a lot of time on.

I like beautiful pieces of art, but making one requires a certain level of skill and years of dedication that I just cannot fathom.

I like to help companies set up automation using technology, but I’m picky about what I automate at home.

It’s okay to purely be a consumer for a lot of things. You don’t need to have a YouTube channel just because someone else has one. You don’t need to start your own podcast. You don’t have to publish on Substack. You don’t have to create videos on TikTok (RIP!).

Unless you want to.

Spend some time and identify what you want to create and what you will enjoy creating. Be a consumer for the rest of the things. You don’t have to give in to this looming social pressure.
