Part 1: Who do you love, baby? And WHY?
As in – what are the values you hold dear for yourself already? Or what values you admire in others you respect?
You may already be very clear on what drives your decisions, your outlook on life, and how you relate to others.
In this case list as many of those values as you can think of now – list each in as few words as possible without compromising on your understanding of each.
If you’re unsure or would like to self-check that you’re not missing out on something important (and I strongly believe you should), then here are a few idea-generators:
- Consider what you aspire to have as your core values.
- What are the values of the people you respect and look up to, and why do you look up to them?
- Think back to moments in your life when you were super happy, or you were on the better end of a hardship: what were the values that carried you through or you cared about then?
- And finally – look through this list and see if anything resonates enough to include in your final line-up.
Your actions for this step:
Now that you’ve brainstormed a comprehensive list of core values that matter to you, write the full list out neatly in one place. Don’t worry about ordering them by importance, and don’t spend time analysing if you REALLY want each one on your list.
When you’re ready – let’s move to Part 2
