The problem is, your mind starts filling up with new information, and there’s only so much you can learn in a day before your mind is exhausted.
This is something I admitedly struggle with on a daily basis. Being in a creative industry, I need to create… and not even just for work. I really need to do my own projects to both stay sharp and have an outlet. But it’s all too easy to just sit back and consume, whether it be Facebook & Twitter, stories in my feed reader, TV, or even something helpful like tutorials.
Carlos Pero at Web Producer has a great write up of why it’s important to create something before consuming something.
