#blubworldthinks - Why Create Content?

We as humans have always been looking for comfort and ease in our lives. We are genetically trained to remove all the things that cause any form of discomfort or which requires tedious labor, simply because the ancient early man had to survive very hostile conditions. He had to conserve energy at any cost as it took a lot of power to hunt and if he could not hunt, he could not eat. So he developed a simple rule of conserving his energy at any cost.

But with the evolution of time and our living environment, we don't need to do this as we don't live in those antagonistic environments anymore, we rather live in the best of comforts, and can buy anything that earlier we used to hunt. But that energy still exists in us and we now spend it at gymnasiums and clubs in playing sports and exercising in order to stay fit. Our physical fitness is very well taken care of by the new-age solutions like gymnasiums, sports complexes, running tracks, trekking trails etc.

But in this entire fitness regime, we have simply forgotten about our mental fitness. We study to earn a job, we do a job to earn a living and finally look for sweet retirement plans which can give us comfort. As evoluted creatures that have a great knowledge bank, and typically rely on their intelligence for survival and thriving, we have stopped giving strain or doing the right exercises for our mental capabilities. We have become creatures of consumption as far as intellect is concerned. We consume a lot of content throughout our lives but we are always afraid or shy of creating content.

There are many forms of documenting things that are going around us and each of those modes of documentation is the backbone for the different media platforms that exist around us. What today's generation is doing is just consuming a lot of content from all the media. Though some of us are creating content, they are not concerned with its quality, longevity or the gains that it will create for the future generations.

Each individual must be responsible to leave behind some legacy that our future generations can follow and thrive on in the future. The best way to create a legacy is to document the most interesting, the most impactful, and the most extraordinary experiences of our lives. Each one of us should build a habit of creating content whether through writings, paintings, videos or photographs.

The simple reason why we should all be doing this is because when we start crafting content we cannot just blabber, we need to build an understanding of our own self and our environment which will require a lot of reading, listening and watching. After aligning our own thoughts on the content that we have consumed, figure out its highlights or just the essential factors to remember. Follow it by creating a structure and putting those ideas on to the medium of your choice. After all these efforts and deliberation finally comes the stage when you start creating content and thus exercise your brain in the process.

It's not an easy job to leave a legacy and just the beginning of creating a legacy is also a very difficult one. But if you do not take this ride then your future might not have a ride at all.

When you go through the struggle of creation, you will understand that along with creating a legacy for the future, you might have developed some super-critical skills for your own self. You may not want to use them for the future but with this kind of an interest and dedication, you can at least pursue them for your own self.
