Aligning Work (and Life) With Our Core Values

Aligning work (and life) with our core values

I recently set aside a chunk of time to think about how to align my work (and life) with my core values. In discussions with GPT 4, I came to the following activities and journaling prompts to flesh out this topic for myself:

Review and Alignment with Core Values

Activity: Reviewing Core Values

  • Duration: 15 minutes
  • Objective: Reaffirm and reflect on your established core values.
  • Materials: Journal.
  • Prompt: List your core values. Reflect on why each is important to you and how they have shaped your decisions and life direction.

Activity: Current Life Assessment

  • Duration: 20 minutes
  • Objective: Assess how your current lifestyle, career, and personal activities align with these values.
  • Materials: Journal.
  • Prompt: For each core value, describe how well your current work and life reflect this value on a scale of 1 to 10. Identify areas where the alignment could be improved.

Activity: Goal-Oriented Vision Building

  • Objective: Refine your vision of an ideal balanced life that integrates these values.
  • Materials: Journal, digital or paper visual aids (e.g., vision board).
