Be Values Driven
Listen to fear
Focus on substance
Label your values
Make your values matter during the moment.
Take 30 mins to sit down in a quiet place (the toilet if you have to in a noisy house) and write down everything that comes to mind about what matters most. Whether you scribble down words, sentences and/or draw pictures. Get it all on paper. Over this next week regularly look at it, add to it. You can cross things out or better to explain to yourself what you mean.
After a week, sit down for another 30 mins and try to put the most significant, aspirational values into a sentence or a phrase. This is your set of values. Try your best to live by them. Benjamin Franklin did a similar thing with his virtues. Refine them over the years and let them drive you. Be values-driven, not valuable driven. These are some of the things that matter most.
Discussion Rules: I’m not into thought policing at all, but I am big on honour and respect. Opinionated is fine, but if you’re ill-mannered or nasty, expect to see your comments disappear. Please do not put your URL in the comment text and please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name, as the latter comes off like spam. Have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation! (All credit to Tim Ferris’ site who I totally took this idea from).
