Desire to create

Humans have a deep desire to create and to build.
We rose to the top of the food chain because of our ability to create.

… things have been carefully engineered to get you addicted, like a drug.
We stop thinking for ourselves.
Our brains are being hijacked and rewired.

Science shows that the process of creating is better for us than the actual “creation.”

The act of creating anything forces you to focus, learn, develop a work ethic, and build character.

In addition, you gain skills, experience, meaning, purpose, identity, growth, fulfillment, and self-esteem.

I challenge you, for one week, to severely restrict your information input.

This means:

No books…

No blogs…

No news…

No social media…

No TV or Movies…

During reading the article I unpinned my two permanent Chrome tabs. One was Google Calendar because my smartphone already does notifications and the second was Facebook messenger. Both tabs can I reopen whenever I knowingly want, so no need to be distracted from them.
