As a noun, worth means “excellence of character or quality, usefulness or importance, value.”

So, for example, my house could be of great worth, or of little worth.  Your cheerfulness is of fantastic worth and his car is of negligent worth.

I find it remarkable that the worth of something is relative to its owner; it is never pre-designed.  Even if we talk about money– ten dollars is always “worth ten dollars,” yet ten dollars might equate to a treasure for Bobby, and be mere change for others…

The worth we give something determines its value to us.

The worth we give someone determines his/her value to us.

So… how do you measure the worth that you attribute to something or someone? Let me just mention two right here:

Money,

and Time.

How much of your money are you willing to spend on people/values you say have worth in your life?  To be more specific (ouch!): how much of your money are you willing to spend on your friends, spouse, health, future, personal development, charity?

How much of your time are you willing to spend on people/values you say have worth to you?  TO be more specific or confronting: how much of your time are you willing to spend on your friends, spouse, health, future, personal development, charity?

The bottom line question is really: how much of yourself–who you are at your core–are you actually spending right now on people/values that you say have worth to you?

And that, my friend, can get pretty confronting…

What do you think about worth?  Let’s hear it!
