How to Go From Consumer to Producer ? [49/365]

What I’m lacking now is the producer mindset. I’m still feeling stuck in the consumer mindset where I just get some information in and don’t put much out.

I’m trying to change that, starting with this daily blogging challenge, but I’m not sure I have the correct approach still.

Here is the first question to as then:

How to go from a consumer to a producer mindset ?

After consuming for a few minutes, here is an answer that makes sense to me:

Strive to create something useful to others. Look for ways to make the world around you a better place.

But I don’t have anything to offer to others !

When you want to learn something, do something to pass it forward. Don’t just read or watch. Make it useful to somebody else by changing how the idea is framed for example.

If you solved a simple technical issue, write about it in a blog post.

You’re trying to make a change in yourself ? Make a video about it explaining how you’re trying to do it.

I think this all starts with the awareness that we just solved an issue. If you did that, others probably encountered the same issue and would love to see your solution.

It does not have to be the answer to life. It can simply help someone else make a single step.

Keep being useful
