Hello, it’s Craig. Welcome to the Movers Mindset podcast. Today it’s just me. We’ll be back on Wednesday with another interview.
I want to share an idea with you that I have found helpful in thinking about my interactions with other people and with communities. The idea is that each interaction is a trade. Framing my interaction as trades with other individuals, has helped me monitor my behavior so that I behave fairly and justly, in a way that I don’t exploit others or allow them to exploit me. I find that understanding the trade helps me to appreciate others and ultimately be happier because I am more aware of the range of values that other people provide. A lot of trade involves the exchange of money for a good or a service, but this can confuse the issue. To understand the real value involved, it helps to think about the other values that go into the trade.
