The longer I live and work, the more convinced I become that maintaining a set of personal core values is critical to long-term personal growth and success. If we’re not operating from an anchor or guidepost that is concise and motivating, how do we know we’re progressing? Hopefully we’re not stagnating. And I really hope, for the sake of everyone around us, we’re not regressing.
This week’s episode focuses on my own three core values. My definitions for each have evolved over the years, but I’ve stood by all three more than 20 years. Since high school, I’ve believed deeply in the power each of these words carry. So I hope you find value in this episode. More importantly, I hope my explanation of what drives me challenges you to have a similar conversation–with yourself and those closest to you. Until we’re ready for such a talk, we’re not ready to start the long process of upgrading ourselves to become who we KNOW we can become.
