Social Banking

Social Banking | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

The time and energy we can invest in others socially – in terms of building and maintaining friendships – is a lot like money; we cannot spend it in two places at once. Given that we have a limited budget with which to build and maintain relationships, it’s of vital importance for some cognitive system to assess the probability of social returns from its investment; likewise, individuals have a vested interest in manipulating that assessment in others in order to further their goals.

Respect is the Root of Happiness, Not Money

Respect is the Root of Happiness, Not Money | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it
Money may make the world go 'round' but respect is what will make you happy. New studies have shown that the respect you've earned is worth more than what is in the bank.

 

Respect is hard earned and for people it's something that is worth more than its weight in gold. Many believe that success, a high paying career or a college degree breeds happiness but that's not necessarily true based on previous studies. . . .
