I attended a speech at CSUN behind the seated crowd and as we were listening to the speaker I had a thought. There are two kinds of people here.
Consumers listen, read, watch, and try to understand. They try to make sense of it all within their own perspective.
In that moment I was a consumer. I’m a consumer all the time. I’m a consumer as a college student, as a friend, as a little brother, as a son, as a dreamer, as a human being. Everyone is a consumer, it’s how we become experienced.
Creators use their experience as a resource to produce something meaningful. Why? Heck if I know. Leaving a legacy would be my first guess.
In this moment I am a creator, and I can’t begin to explain how satisfying that is. I write this to leave a positive impact on someone who will bother to read this far. I encourage you to consume with the goal of being a creator. Create an opportunity, a relationship, an idea, a new experience, whatever. At the very least, create a great day.
