“Consuming culture is never as rewarding as producing it.” – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Apologies for being MIA the past few weeks. I’ll be back to my regular posting soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this thought-provoking quote (above) from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s book, Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention. One of my favorite pieces of advice from Csikszentmihalyi’s book is to be surprised by at least one thing each day and in turn, surprise at least one person a day. It’s a good challenge and one that’s bound to lead to some interesting stories.
