Doer

Be a do-er or be a be-er, but try not to be a consumer.

Use what you have, do things, create things, be and exist.

Consumption is necessary but usually connected with doing or being.
The getting is not necessary.
The having without doing is not fruitful.

If you are planning gifts for this coming weekend - geeftijd - do give someting to do or something to be, rather than something to have.
Such a gift easily becomes a burden for the recipient.

    1. It is a different way of doing things and difficult to do in groups and societies seeped with rock-hard traditions, but personally I would rather be taken to buy a sweater (or not, if nothing is suitable) than just be given one.
