What if the things you received were the things you really wanted?
Value is your business litmus test. The little strip of paper that changes color, telling you whether what you produce is just for the money or also for the betterment of your customers and compatriots. The good value of your product or service turns your work litmus paper the correct color. This intrinsic worth drives the vision, mission, goals and accomplishments of the business.
The litmus test for value tells you the importance of something other than its price. This test puts quality over quantity, ranks human benefits over human harm and lets you know whether your intentions are good or if you are making money at someone else’ expense. Good-colored value strips add purpose, guide daily decisions toward beneficial and bring principled intent to the organization and its people. Value is a tangible beyond mere money that can be quantified, measured and acted upon.
You need to fix what you do if you can’t find real, true value in the work you produce, whether for the business yourself and, especially, your customers and clients. For real and long-lasting success, make or give something worth the money, something with more than monetary value. If your business litmus paper is the wrong color, it’s time to reassess, re-imagine and redesign. Only good work brings forth the true color of value.
