Are you a producer or a consumer?
It’s not a permanent assessment. We all fluctuate between the two.
It’s great as a business because we need both. Yet, have you considered this mindset in social situations? I have.
I tend to prefer to be a producer, especially when I’m with friends and family. I want to contribute, seek ways to bring value and make things flow.
When I observe others in group settings, it’s easy for me to zero in on the consumers.
While I’m also someone who consumes, it only becomes problematic when it’s a trend.
If you’re too often a consumer, you may find the producers won’t need you over time.
