A Dream of Mine
I am a consumer. I love to consume. Especially ideas. That's why I'm such a fan of the internet. I can consume as much as I want.
And I think it makes me both a smarter and content person.
But besides consuming, I think that I would like to produce. I produce my blog, and with my business I produce fix-it-ness to make others' lives better.
But I actually want to produce something that is tangible. Like grow food, make a gadget, something that I made and can put into your hands.
I think it's natural to want to produce. I'm thankful that so much is given to me. Very thankful. But if I were to actually create something that offers tangible benefit, I believe it would make me happier.
Many of our jobs in the US aren't actually producing. In fact, many production jobs are shifting to 3rd world countries. Which makes sense. I just hope we don't lose the ability to build a bridge, make cars, that sort of thing.
