Take some time with this core values exercise to consciously assess what really matters to you. Identifying your values will make it much easier for you to work out how you need to adjust what you are doing in your life and work.
So what is really important to you?
What are the things that make you feel you are really doing what you were put on this earth to do?
Which activities leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied?
What is it about them that makes them so special?
It is usually the fact that a core value is being met – something like challenge, fun, contribution or order. They will be different for each of us.
• Here is an inventory of core values that you can just read through and see which values ring true for you.
• Just use ticks and crosses to mark off values or, if you prefer, use a rating to help you work out which are more important.
• Remember that no list can ever be complete. There may be some additional personal values that are unique to you, so don’t be limited by the list. Just add anything else that just feels right.
