In order to make the appropriate decisions about where to use your time, you must know what you truly value. In other words, you must identify your core values. That requires you to “begin with the end in mind” as we learned from Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
Ask questions like:
- How do I want to be remembered?
- What would I like to have people say in my eulogy?
- What is most important to me?
- When do I feel most alive?
- When do I feel most satisfied?
- How have I made difficult decisions in the past?
Think through these questions and start a list of your core values. There is a list of solid choices below to use as thought starters. However, the ultimate choices must come from you. Keep the number to around five core values. That makes for tough choices.
Once you have your core values identified. You can begin living your life in alignment with them. That will generate a truly fulfilling life!
