Firstly you start to produce as you add value to the world. You need to keep adding skills to your toolbox of skills and to also look for ways to contribute more.
If you are always looking to add value, it is hard to fall back into consumer mode.
Secondly once you add value and focus on doing more, the next step in this progression is to improve your workflow. This means to be more efficient at the things you are doing. This is a critical one for me, as I want to be able to have massive amounts of freedom.
The more efficient I am, the more freedom I have. Make every hour count by getting as much done as you can in that period of time.
When you magnify this savings, you can see how much more I could get done just by speeding up my workflow.
