That's the first step I take my clients through: 1) clarity of purpose and 2) awareness of core values. Sounds basic? Yes AND it is very important! Values are the foundation that drives most of our decisions whether in business or life. As Roy Disney put it: "it's not hard to make decisions once you know what your values are".
My top values are: minimalism, self-growth, contribution, freedom, family, gratitude and acknowledgment. What are your core values?
The value and purpose exercise that I take my clients through falls under step 1 in my 4 step Conscious Expression program. To learn more about my program get in touch via social media or email - I know we introverts don't like phone calls :)
