Consuming vs. producing

Got this note from a reader named Hamza.
You hit me man. You hit me hard.
I was reading your “Find Your Profitable Idea” ebook…until I hit the “STOP” page. As usual I kept reading it and though “I’ll do it later. No worries.” Then I read the page that came after “Consumer vs. Producer”: that’s where it happened. I stopped for a minute and realised that I’ve been consuming personal development content for close to 3 years now without much action… THREE F#$%# YEARS!
Having said that, I did get some results in my life (I got my shit together and I am about to start a PhD in one of the best universities in the world). But really, I only used 1% of all the stuff I read over the years (including your IWTYTBR book) – and I’m pretty well off. I can only imagine where I’d be if I just acted on 10% of what I read. Argh!..
Anyway, just wanted to drop this quick email. Just know this, even if I don’t get my Earn1K profitable idea (even though I’m certain I will by the end of the program), just those couple of pages had a big effect on me.
It’s so easy to consume. It’s much harder to produce something.
That’s why the rewards for successfully producing something that people want are so disproportionately high.
