Consume less, produce more!

There's a good chance that you consume significantly more than you produce on the other side. Our information-packed world serves us beautifully draped consumer morsels at every turn. A TikTok video here, a news item there, and the new mobile game is already waiting in the wings.

There's nothing wrong with consumption. But it makes a difference whether you consume excited news or a well-thought-out book. Moreover, the preponderance of consumption in relation to creation has increased significantly.

My advice: avoid news. Instead, talk to someone who knows a lot about the subject. Or read a book that puts the subject of the news into a broader context. If not a book, at least go for a longer article (at least 3 pages, better more).

Produce more. For example, by writing for yourself on a regular basis. I offer you the following experiment: Write a few lines a day for a period of at least one month. If you don't know what to write about, just write that you don't know what to write about. You will quickly find that writing helps you to organize your thoughts and calm your mind.
