5 Laws of Value


I am still in China. This is a typical multistory Chinese factory. Most are 5-7 storeys. And the elevators are for the product and raw materials - not for the people. Even the guests use the stairs.
I notice a lot more walking here. Even walking inside the subway stops are a long way.
There is not near as much obesity here as in North America. I thought it was just the chopsticks which slowed down the eating but I think the general activity level here helps.
That said - lots of North American chain restaurants are here so I suspect the unhealthy parts of the North American lifestyle will follow.


A friend emailed me the following that I thought was interesting and thought provoking. The 5 Laws of Value:




The Law of Value Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment

The Law of Compensation Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them

The Law of Influence Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first

The Law of Authenticity The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself

The Law of Receptivity The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving

I like the "5 Laws of Value" and your "Time Leadership" concept.

Hi Mr. Estill

I enjoyed looking at the pictures of China and it was interesting to read the comment you made about elevators actually not being used for people! Amazing.

I also checked out the videos on u tude regarding employee/employer frustration and you are right they were quite funny ( in a sad sort of way). Thank you for all the great tips and advise on your blog site I have found you to be very enlightening and informative. Good luck with your book!

Sincerely,

Jeannie Boyd

I too was in China recently. Yes, they do use lifts for materials only. Strangely, I was not surprised.

2. The 5 laws stuff is interesting, but not serious enough. For those interested in serious stuff on Value, I recommend the following blog which states the law of conservation of value as a starter.
