Bring new value

What you invest yourself in, has value for you. What demands no effort, attention or expense, has no value in your life.

If you want some particular part of your life to have value for you, invest yourself in it. Value, from your perspective, depends on how much of your life you devote to it.

Your relationships have value because of what you put into them. Your work has value based on the time, attention and effort you give to it.

What you care about, what you care for, what you spend your energy to support, results in value for your life. What matters most is not what it is, but how much you care, how freely you give of yourself.

From a modest tea ceremony to a massive construction project, life is full of opportunities to create value. When you give, when you care, support, pay attention, persist, the richness of life increases.

Do the work, go to the trouble, take an interest, spend the time, pay the price. And bring new value into your life, into the world, every day.

— Ralph Marston
