Creating or Consuming

On this 3-day weekend, I found myself with a few spare cycles I don’t normally have.

But by default, it seemed, I used those cycles reading and consuming content from the web.

It occurred to me, that I could have been using those moments to create.  To add a feature to  To rework one of the broken reports from work.  To make a smoothie even.

Does Creation always require more energy than Consumption?  Why is the inertia to get towards Creation so high, but the path to Consumption so well paved?

And more critically, how do I maintain a mindset of Creation, while keeping idle Consumption at bay?
