people are awesome...

…and I’m not just talking about those kick-ass Youtube videos that pop up each year.

I have a core belief that people are intrinsically valuable. Sometimes the manifestation of that value — their extrinsic value — speaks to the intrinsic, sometimes it doesn’t.

That’s irrelevant… the intrinsic value is pre-eminent.

Therefore, there is something to connect to, something to learn from, and a deposit of your own value that can be made in every interaction you have — right from the President to a homeless person… Their more immediately obvious extrinsic value has no bearing on this.

Life is beautiful when you adopt this idea. People are complex, dangerous, and sometimes even hurtful; but they are also truly amazing.
