The Internet Is Insane

If you’re my age or younger, you should be aware that technology will soon take away the majority of professions.

Many people interpret this badly, however, there is a good side to it all.

There are an inexhaustible amount of creative occupations available.

To me, the word “creative” connotes anything out of the ordinary.

Think about it: if your work is iterative, it’ll only be a matter of time until technology takes over. If you allow it, it’s a terrifying concept.

But it’s a good thing because creative professions are the only ones that are satisfying. And as time passes, there will be more surprises in store for the public. For example, I would have laughed if you told me that being a twitch streamer would be a full-time profession. But now it’s my turn to laugh. Working toward a career that may or may not exist is the last thing you want to do.

Make Time To Read And Write

Make Time To Read And Write

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” – Stephen King

– Stephen King on how you can’t be a creator without also consuming

We need to consume as much media as much as we produce it

Newspaper, social media, podcasts, etc.

You know all the different types of media there are and how it changes the way we see the world on a daily basis.

You wouldn’t create half the things you know today if you didn’t consume it.

We are in the digital age or the 21st century as some other people like to call it.

Stephen King writing in his office.

As being a content creator, I have to write about things I constantly see or hear about which causes my reaction on the things I choose to speak about.

You used to read a lot as a little kid and fell in love with it but what’s stopping you now?

Is it lack of time? Lack of motivation? Whatever the case may be, start reading again and as much as possible.

Especially for people who put out content for others to enjoy it on a day to day basis.

I love making podcasts and blog posts but it wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t consume media first. Stephen King knew what he was talking about.

He was someone we all looked up to and how his inventions changed the world and everything we see today.

It may be hard to break the cycle of reading and making it apart of your daily routine but you will be glad you did.

Make that jump and try it out.
