Be Your Own Life Coach No.2: making big decisions (ii)

When you’re making a big decision

(and always remember……..NOT MAKING A DECISION IS STILL A DECISION)

Or wondering where to go next in your life

A Think first about your values.

What really matters to you?

Love? Friendship? Money? Being reliable? Lifelong learning? Community? Family? Independence? Work? Security? Freedom? Creativity? Meaning? Idleness? Play?

Or other values I haven’t mentioned?

Then:

  1. Cut a piece of plain A4 paper or card into 8 pieces
  2. Pick 8 of your favourite values and write each separately on a different piece of card
  3. Study them – what do they mean to you?
  4. Put them in order of which are most important to you

This exercise tells you what’s most important in your life

Back to your big decision…………where does it fit? How does it fit with your values and what you care most about? How does this inform your decision?
