Are economics or values guiding your actions?

Are economics or values guiding your actions? Before we dig into this question, let’s look at what we mean by economics and values.

Loosely speaking, economics could be any intention or action associated with gaining monetary benefit. ‘Give to get back’, ‘Offer this or that as a loss leader with the aim of obtaining a return later on’, and so forth.

Even without referring to Gordon Gekko’s ‘Greed is good’ philosophy, the importance of money is clear to us all in our consumer-driven world.

Values, on the other hand, represent our personal approach to life. Though we may not always follow their input, their presence in our heart is always perceived.

So, are economics or values guiding your actions? Are you in it ‘just for the money’ or is there something else moving you forward?

We live life on our own terms and, in essence, there is no right or wrong answer to the question ‘Are economics or values guiding your actions?

Sometimes, however, it is good to talk through such enquiries. To schedule a coaching conversation, just get in contact.

Kindest regards.

  1. Very thought provoking read. I think I’d like being somewhere in the middle – maintaining my values while creating economic stability yet never losing either.
    Good read. Have a great Sunday or Monday there?😊
