Kevin the Complainer. I was going to make his complaining in red ink, but then realized it would look like he was spitting up blood. I think I’ll re-do this one. He looks much plumper than the first rendition and the fourth stripe bled out.

Can this chameleon use anything else? Constructive criticism welcome! She is a character in my next children’s book and she might seem “bland” but she’s supposed to be.

 

 

Create, Don’t Criticize*

*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?
