You might have heard from different sources about the concept of bringing value. I know when I first heard about it I thought – that’s just a fancy way for rich people to justify making money. But is there actual value in bringing value through our actions?
Value starts with caring. You might care about your parents who can’t find online classes suitable for their group category, your toddler whose needs are not being met by your local nursery, the planet, people in poverty, women and access to sanitary products, ideas of masculinity that inhibit men’s behaviors and the list goes on and on. Needless to say, we as a global community didn’t get many things right. And that’s great, pain means there’s a need for change and an opportunity for us to make it happen.
Witnessing a lack can get your solution oriented mind working and your creativity beaming. When we create for profit or non-profit projects that before any monetary value they create social value, that’s where our legacy begins. Know that value is always linked with action. Waiting for things to happen doesn’t produce results.
