Producers and Consumers
by Jack Richins
I agree with these sentiments of David’s about making things, though I’ve always thought of the problem in terms of "producers" and "consumers". I don’t want to be a consumer! If such thing as a pure consumer actually existed, they’d be nothing more than a drain on society.
But producers build things, make things better. Fear gets in the way of producing – consuming is easy, but it’s scary to put yourself out there, to fail at producing what you want to produce or succeeding but then having others critize it. But in the end, it’s the only worthwhile endeavor. Anyway, read David’s post – some good thoughts on why you should try…
