What is Value?

It’s been my experience that far too often, the word “value” is commonly viewed as a synonym for “money”. While these terms can be substituted for each other in certain circumstances, those instances are the exception rather than the rule. Providing value for others can lead to opportunities to make money, but someone can have a lot of money and not necessarily provide value to others. An example? Any Ponzi scheme facilitator is a perfect model for how having a lot of money comes at the expense of abusing other’s trust.

What does this mean for individuals? Don’t do things simply for the purpose of adding to your net worth. Do things of substance, things that make others happier. Everything else will flow from that.
