Be Your Own Life Coach No.3: 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?

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

C 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?
