Find Your Values Baseline – Where the Rubber Meets the Road!

Where the Rubber Meets the Road!A little more than a week ago we did an exercise in which you visualized, and concretized, your ideal day. This was a first step in identifying what you value.

We then moved on and explored internal and external values. If external values are the “what” then your internal values are the “how.”

Let’s focus on your external values for a moment — because this truly is where the rubber meets the road! While it’s crucial to identify and explore your internal values, it’s when you put them into action that they come to life.

Your external values are embodied and embedded in a cluster of activities that comprise the whole of your active life. Try this exercise to help clarify what these activities may be for you.

  • First, write down 3-5 of your most important external values.
  • Next, prioritize them with “#1” being most important.
  • Then, list 5 of the most significant activities for each value.

That is the cluster of activities that make your external values concrete!

Think of this as a values baseline for yourself.  How do you actively manifest these values in your life?  What internal values are reflected on your list? What have you learned? How does this affect your time priorities and your time choices?

I’d love to hear what you’ve discovered … please share your insights and experiences!
