I've been talking to leaders recently about their values. When asked “what are your top 3 values?” one of them answered “Oh, hang on, let me find the piece of paper with them on it.”
What's wrong with that you ask? If you've worked them out and written them down that's awesome, you have taken more action than many leaders.
But are you living them? Because it's when we live our values that the answer comes naturally and quickly. It also means we are making decisions in alignment to our values. And ultimately, it allows us to experience the emotions we want to be experiencing to live the life we want each and every day.

And if you are unable to do this, perhaps it time you made time to work them out?
