What to Create - Start Here (29 ideas)

Updated: an hour ago

Are you satisfied with your creative habits?

I believe that there is more satisfaction in creativity than in consumption. While both can be good or bad, I recommend we prioritize creativity before consumption. We should make it a daily habit to output a little bit more goodness into the world. Fortunately it can have a snowball effect, since creative goodness inspires more creative goodness and you can find it compounding in your life and those around you.


Where to start

In this day and age, creativity can be really hard, because everything that seemingly can be thought of has already been done. Fortunately, you don’t have to be unique to be creative. Your goal should be to make the world a little better. Maybe there are people you can influence or ideas from other people that you can put your own spin on. The more time you give yourself to think about it, the more possibilities you can discover.
