A Values Checklist

This is where you can find a list of some of the most common values that we hold important. These values can be used as part of a values based exercise which will involve the following steps-

1) Print off the list

2) Take a pen, read through the list and circle which 10 values are most important to you.

3) Once you have 10 values, I would like you to then narrow this down even further to 5.

The best way to approach this exercise is with an attitude of curiosity and wonder rather than becoming focused on whether your choices are exactly right or wrong. This is an exercise you can come back to and repeat as necessary, but for now, go with those values that resonate most with you and that you know you hold dear. Enjoy finding out about yourself and considering what is important to you in more detail than you have done before.
