Generally speaking, when people are not builders, they are consumers who are enjoying what builders have made. What builders have made often enriches the builder, but for the consumer who buys the builder’s product or service, those items will likely depreciate rapidly or grow more expensive from whence they came. Needless to say, for consumers, the whole builder-versus-consumer metaphor may be compared to that of someone experiencing a crack high that leads nowhere aspirational but to the crack house all over again. Therefore, as consumers, we have to understand when we are hooked on metaphorical crack and are frequenting the invisible crack house much too often. Once we understand the latter, then the idea of becoming a builder gets much easier to pursue as a life-long goal.
