Creating Is More Rewarding than Consuming

I think it’s healthy for a person to practice introspection from time to time. If nothing else, so they can answer for themselves…why? What makes you get up every morning, why do you act the way that you do? We’re asked “why?” all the time, and in this video we attempt to answer that question.

Why do we want to retire early?
Why do we make YouTube videos?
Why do you build complex solutions to simple problems?

After thinking through everything, we realized the reason is because creating is more rewarding than consuming. In fact, a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, found that making art/things is actually a benefit to your physical and mental health.

    Your videos are always so great, and I especially enjoyed this one. “Why” can be a really hard question to answer. I’m still working it out for myself. I really admire that you have thought through not only the first layer of “why” but gone deeper into it to realize that those answers really mean.
