Value

marriedI think some things should be valued more than some of the things that we might value in their place. Here’re some that come to mind:

Our society used to value character, but now it values personality.

Not life, but a good life, should be chiefly valued.

When doing strength exercises, forget heavy and value effort.

Value good questions over bad answers.

The quality of a society is more valuable than your place in that society.

Being kinder is more valuable than being right.

Reframing failures as feedback creates value.

Value what you’re enthusiastic about, instead of pursuing comfort and luxury.

Trying to be consistently not stupid is more valuable than trying to always be intelligent.

Value curiosity about life in all of its aspects.
