Why money and value aren't the same
A big reason why I promote individuals and businesses to develop more than purely monetary rewards from their work, is that money and value aren’t the same thing.
If we’re using money as a yardstick for value, what happens when a dollar is worth less tomorrow (which it is)?
Meaningful work is about creating something more powerful than just a few dollars.
When we do meaningful work, we have a tribe of people needing us to show up every day, because we make their lives better.
When you have a good day at work, is it the day that you make the most money, or is it the day that you help people the best?
