Producing is a Million Times Better Than Consuming

If I ate the finest cuisine every meal, every day, for 10 years straight - it still wouldn't be as satisfying as the joy that comes from creating something worthwhile.

Building things that matter. Doing things that matter. This is so much more satisfying than consuming.

I eat plain oatmeal, brown rice with tunafish on it, drink black coffee, eat some fruits and vegetables, and try to eat light. Nutrition, not pleasure. But still - there is quite a lot of pleasure in a simple bit of tuna on rice or pasta. That right there is pretty enjoyable - it gives me fuel, keeps me going, gives me life.

How much better is the finest chef's meal than plain tuna on brown rice? Somewhat better, I guess. I've eaten really, really nice food. My favorite is chutoro nigiri, the slightly fatty part of the tuna. It's a delicacy. I had a $15 piece of chutoro once. It was great.

But was it much better than plain tuna on brown rice? Not so much. Creating, producing, building - that gives so much more satisfaction.

Eating Better

I've been tracking everything I eat lately, and putting some calorie numbers on them.

6 November Indian food: Rice, chicken, curry, vegetables.. Small banana. 900 cal.

9 November Lunch: Big portion rice, curry sauce, chicken. 1000 cal.

12 November Lunch: Two kinds of vegetables (one in very light curry), piece of chicken. 400 cal.

This is kind of crazy. The only difference is, I ordered more vegetables and didn't get any curry on the chicken.
