A Spice Girls song from the 90’s comes to mind when making decisions that affect our business, our careers, and our lives. Sometimes it’s hard enough just to figure out the best way to navigate traffic in the morning, where to go for dinner, or how to prioritize when the unexpected shows up.
What Do I Want? And then there are the not “so easy questions” that can keep us stuck wondering what’s next. Do I accept that promotion? Or, do I stay in my chosen field? Do I take my business in a new direction? Or, do I continue to go head-to-head with the competition? Do I invest my time and energy to figure out how to spend my time after 30 years in a job? Or, do I sit in my garden with a glass of wine watching the sunset?
Values Reveal the Path to What You Really Want. Values are no longer just for corporate walls. They become our north star in a world where change and transition are routine. Unfortunately, for many of us, after years of living up to the expectations of our companies, running a business, supporting our families, or turning to the approval of others to define how we show up in the world, we have lost sight of what is important to us. Regularly revisiting our values can:
- Accelerate your progress when faced with work and life-altering situations
- Move you out of “stuck” when you don’t know what to do next
- Give you greater confidence on the right path to choose and
- Help you gain the commitment and trust of others to support your efforts and if needed, join others along the way.
