Everyone works. We work to earn, produce, create, and provide. As you move into and through adulthood, you will learn that your work can and should be more than just something you do to make money to support you and your loved ones. It’s about how you contribute values and value to others and to society as a whole. Again, think about these terms as values (ideas and beliefs about what is good and right) and value (necessary and desirable things that you can give and receive that will improve the lives of others).
