*Theodore Roosevelt

“Do you create anything or just criticize others and belittle their motivations?”

Steve Jobs

You might not admire Steve Jobs as a person or even as an entrepreneur, but there is truth in this quote, as Kovie Biakolo points out.

Social media is a tool of communication. As with any form of communication, it can be utilized for productivity and education or noise pollution.

I’d like to add: it can also be used purely for consumption – for hours on end.

Something worth considering: What is your consumption/criticizing to creation/production ratio?

Maybe it’s time to praise and produce more, and criticize and consume less?

One thought on “Create, Don’t Criticize*

  1. I am not a member of his fan club, Caroline, 😉 but I agree completely. Something I’ve noticed is that often critics are also hard on themselves, frightened of making mistakes. That fear stops people from creating, from attempting new things. I think you have to accept that you’ll make mistakes and be criticized. The only people who don’t make mistakes are those who don’t anything.
