Waking up as a consumer, will focus you on tasks based on filling your brain with fluff. It’s an empty pursuit, and waking up to it prepares your mind to chase after the next update, rather than create the next update. To what end is the consumption?
On the other hand, waking up as a producer will set your mind into a productive mode. You will train your brain to make connections and build not sit back and absorb. Your day will center around the creative process.
Writing is not the only way to produce; focused study of a subject without a direct written result accomplishes the goal and sets the appropriate mindset. The initial task undertaken will set the direction and tone of your thoughts for the day.
