If you are struggling with goal setting, one of the things that can be holding you back is not having guiding values that drive those goals. If this is you, it might be time to take a step back and figure out what your values are, for both your life and your business! This is an important exercise that if you truly take the time to do, will lead to much needed clarity for your goals.
In fact, a year or so ago I called a time out on our marriage and decided to sit down and refocus where our lives were headed. Everyone else’s priorities had just seemed to take priority over ours – not cool! So we took ourselves on a marriage retreat. When I put “write down values” on our agenda for the week we spent away (yes, I’m that person who made an agenda!) I thought it would just be a simple exercise we would do and then move on to some of the deeper things on the list. I was SO wrong! THIS was the exercise that shaped how we got through 2020. THIS was the conversation we needed together AND apart to ensure we were headed in a direction that served us. We needed to talk about what we value in life and take the time to understand why the other person values the things they do. THIS has led us to deeper connection and more ongoing conversations than I ever thought possible.
What are you waiting for? Now is a great time to get some clarity around your values so you can Set. Those. Goals!!
