Why do you do what you do? Why are you making the choices that you’re making? Why are you reading this right now? Why am I choosing to spend my time writing a blog post?
The answers are evasive at best and unique to the individual. Getting a little messy never scared me away, though.
The field of economics addresses motivation to action in terms of utility. Utility, here, is defined as the measurement as “useful-ness” that a consumer obtains from any good. Whether that useful-ness is realized in terms of money, education or learning, or just a good feeling, we do what we do because we recognize utility in that action at that time.
So the questions bend a bit here. Where do you see utility? Is it in giving or receiving? I believe that there’s a way, with a little effort, that business can be sustained in genuine service to others.
