What value do you receive money to produce?
- An architect is paid money to design buildings. These are valuable because they are where people live and work.
- A web designer gets paid to create websites. People and business value these as a forum to share their message.
- Less directly but true nonetheless, a homemaker creates value for her home and family and receives financial support as part of the family’s MEC.
You receive money because you contribute something that others value. This is one of the ways your MEC connects you to the world outside yourself. Considering both yourself and the world beyond, what are your sentiments regarding the value you produce? What are your sentiments regarding the impact?
Note* I am not saying that all value is transactional. People often produce value for which there is no money involved. Much like all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares, though money is always exchanged for value, value is not always exchanged for money.
