Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to the Tuesday Newsday session at PimpHop.com Internet Magazine.Since the beginning of the year, in accordance with my new years and new decade resolutions, I saw fit to shift my focus to the things behind things.
During this period, I have found it challenging to actually find any person, place, or thing, that does not have a something behind it or them, and I am taking a calculated risk by investing my time and energy into this and other “somethings” behind things, as I believe that in the midst of complexities that we often entertain with complex jargon, so that we may feel intelligent or believe another to be when searching for or providing answers, things actually become more complex in the process.
The current area of the utmost concern globally, with all associated complexities as of this moment is economics.
eÂ·conÂ·oÂ·my1.thrifty management; frugality in the expenditure or consumption of money, materials, etc.2.an act or means of thrifty saving; a saving: He achieved a small economy by walking to work instead of taking a bus.3.the management of the resources of a community, country, etc., esp. with a view to its productivity.4.the prosperity or earnings of a place: Further inflation would endanger the national economy seriously.5.the disposition or regulation of the parts or functions of any organic whole; an organized system or method.6.the efficient, sparing, or concise use of something: an economy of effort; an economy of movement.
Theology .a.the divine plan for humanity, from creation through redemption to final beatitude.b.the method of divine administration, as at a particular time or for a particular race.
It too (the economy) is a thing that actually has a thing behind it, and the more I tune in to news shows and expert analysis, the word that pops up to define the thing behind that thing, is VALUE.
We have market value, property value, family value, currency value, self value,Â and a host of other descriptions of things with the thing behind it being value.
Now, if we think outside of the box which is how the process is usually coined, we can see that value is not an actual tangible thing yet the thing that tangibles rely on. One does not go to the store to pick up a case of value, or place an order with a warehouse to order a pallet of value, nor even log on to the web to download 100 megabytes of value, yet each of those things, people, and places have value assigned to them.
I was actually watching the game show known as Jeopardy last night with Kareem Abdul Jabar, Solidad Obrien, and some other person, and I think it may have actually has shifted my thinking to work in reverse or the norm, similar to the theme of the game show as I have stated with the answer, which is then followed by the question.
Answer- Rylan Branch.
Question- What is the source of that which assigns value?
In business, the popular buzz word that smart people use currently is known as adding value, and even the U.S. Federal Government has gotten in on the action by developing a taxation method known as value added tax (VAT) , which in my opinion, is simply a follow through with
the course of nature with Pimpin’ On A Presidential Level.
The meat of the matter relates to the fact that one can only add that which they posses to any person, place, or thing, as I find it unreasonable to expect for an empty container to add content to another empty container. I can also say interestingly enough, that I could expect an empty container to take away (receive) content from a full container, so my daily morning walks in which I pass by the local Starbucks, confirm that a solid business model would be to offer that which fills the empty cup in exchange for something of equal value, which in this case, is primarilyÂ high grade quality coffee and other beverages along with atmosphere,Â for a sufficient price.
In closing, my current focus is to concentrate on effective ways to add to and sustain for other people, places, and things, that which I have within my own container, which is astronomically high value, in exchange for a modestly handsome income, and simply use the fact that I am able to bring attention to the word and definition of the word value, and bring others to a
greater awareness of it and its workings as well as their own value, and surpass the concept of adding value, and move into the threshold of
I love my job, and the pay is great too!
A different perspective to consider.
