“Effort creates value, value gives emotion, emotion is power.”
Let’s begin by stating the obvious that, every now and then, the obvious needs to be stated. There are many reasons for the necessity of the statement of the obvious, primarily the refreshment that is wrought from feeling oneself to be of intelligence, with minimal effort.
The below statements of an obvious nature, apart from showing how time can be slowed down by delving into the details of a transactional moment, truly show how an artistic presentation can really churn out a point.
A Customer has actual cash, potential chocolate. A Purveyor has actual chocolate, potential cash. The Customer is in the market for chocolate. The Purveyor is in the market for cash. A shared flash of light. The Customer and the Purveyor conduct an exchange of ownership: cash for chocolate, chocolate for cash. The transfer instant creates its own proof in the form of a receipt, a contract proving the past – if it is trusted to have been had as documented. The Purveyor now has money. The Customer now has chocolate. Value is had in its most narrow of forms: ownership has been transferred. Primary market goals have been fulfilled.
The mouth expands. The Customer eats the chocolate. The Purveyor draws a breath of hope. Time moves on, as it does, as such is its way.
A Customer’s smile. A Purveyor’s relief. Broadened may value be, thanks to the power of feedback, you see. Objectivity keeps the definition of value on the nigh, subjectivity brings the emotion: see it multiply. Ne’er forget that an instant is but one, but a smile is a sign, that more of them can be won. So be sure to ask for feedback – never fear to hear – for with the knowledge of the truth, you’ll be hittin’ more home runs, just like good ol’ Babe Ruth.
Lame to the point, but it has been made.
