I agree with you completely because I’ve been saying this same thing after reading Altucher for many years now. Fortunately, I was always creator of something so it just gave me big push to create more and more. Consumption is a one-way street. I don’t want to be always on the receiving end. Creation, no matter how small it is for the world, changes the world with that much of a little push — like what you did with this blog and me writing answer to it. Together we pushed the boat a tiny bit different direction.
