Are we Optimizing our Way out of Creation?


In the Dangerous Effects of Reading, David Tate invites pause and reflection on our daily consumption habits:

I think we should all agree that getting faster at judging things
is bad, but I think the real danger in having a super-efficient-filter
is that your default mode is exclusion – you reject long enough and
you lose the ability to create things that pass your own filter.  You
stagnate at work for fear of everything you do being judged like every
news article or viral video that you view.

So how do you break the power of consumption? By creating your own things.

Creation builds capacity for the pursuit of freedom, happiness, and plays to your strengths that feed your ability.

With so much emphasis still placed upon being noticed, plenty of opportunity is left in the noticing arena.
