How can I add value to..

7 years ago I took stock of my life, only to realize that yes I had achieved a few milestones including starting a family and attaining 5K friends on Social platforms, it felt cool. I thought that satisfaction would come by the mere fact of surrounding myself with people albeit virtually. I ended up spending more time scrolling and refreshing the feeds to check what was either hot, not or new. Wait..wait..I know what you are thinking, scrolling down to where the value is. I got you!

I decided to pursue understanding how value chains are integrated around humanity; what they are, where they can be found, how I can be part of…..!

A value chain is a set of activities that a firm operating in a specific industry performs in order to deliver a valuable product for the market. Wikipedia

To my surprise, I realized that similar to food chain or supply chain, if broken, value chain can delay or terminate our potential and make us miss out on our purpose. It’s imperative for our survival then, that we should know our place in the chain. Otherwise the end product which is our goal and/or purpose will be far from being attained.

Help answer the following questions so that our base can be built in a series of value addition. How may we add value to our lives? How may we add value to the lives of others?
