Commonality is the New Currency

The more divided our world gets, the more important sharing becomes.

Our currency is commonality.

On the positive side, the more evidence of sharing we have, the richer we become. The more collective touchpoints that unite us, the happier we become. The more connections we have with like-minded souls, the more normal we feel. And the more time we spend together, the more optimistic we become.

On the negative side, the less time together we spend, the more selfish we become. The less people we have to share our lives with, the emptier our victories become. The less social capital we build, the less support we have when the hard times hit. And the less we share our unique experience with each other, the blinder we become.

Isn’t it amazing what commonality changes?
