Offer value

To experience value you must create, offer and uphold value. There is no other way.

By its very nature value must be internalized for it to have meaningful impact on your life. To reap the benefits of anything you must have some degree of personal investment and appreciation for it.

Fifteen thousand social media friends assembled by an algorithm mean nothing. A single friendship forged by years of shared experience means everything.

Value is what you put your life, your time, your thought, your heart into. It does not come instantly or frivolously.

A life of quality and value revolves around the desire to offer value, to live each moment with a commitment to quality. The countless ways of doing so add immensely to the richness of life.

Value exists when you participate in it. By doing the work to offer value beyond yourself you are building value and substance within your own life and throughout the world.
