Your personal core values

... are there to guide behavior and choice. 

Get them right and you'll be swift and focused in your decision-making, with clear direction. 

Get them wrong or leave them ambiguous, and you'll constantly wonder how you got into this mess.

Find out what characteristics or ways of behaving makes you feel good. Answer the following questions:

  • What's important to you in life?
  • If you could have any career, without worrying about money or other practical constraints, what would you do?
  • When you’re reading news stories, what sort of story or behaviour tends to inspire you?
  • What type of story or behaviour makes you angry?
  • What do you want to change about the world or about yourself?
  • What are you most proud of?
  • When were you the happiest?
Defining Your Values
  1. Identify the times when you were happiest. 
  2. Identify the times when you were most proud. 
  3. Identify the times when you were most fulfilled and satisfied. 
  4. Determine your top values, based on your experiences of happiness, pride, and fulfillment. 
  5. Prioritize your top values.

  6. Reaffirm your values. 

Living Your Personal Values

Assess how well you’re honoring each value by scoring each one on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 = optimally living the value).

  • What’s your level of satisfaction with each value?
  • Record your score for each. 
  • Date the top of the column. Repeat this exercise once a month or quarter to assess your progress.
  • If you score below 7 in a particular value, what changes do you need to make? 
  • What has to happen for you to further honor this value?
