How are you going to spend most of your time today, shipping or receiving? That’s the choice you must make.
Receiving: time spent on consuming information, crunching data, devouring books, taking, taking, taking (most of which likely won’t even make you any smarter than you are already).
Shipping: delivering your art (what ever it is) to your tribe, community, the world, giving, giving, giving (which is likely to help somebody somewhere).
Both require energy output. Consider which is most likely to give you the return on energy that you’re after.
