It was interesting to see after doing my values process how some of my values have morphed as I have become wiser. If you asked me 20 years ago, I would have had efficiency and accuracy and detail-oriented as some of my top values and virtues. My top 5 now are: time, authenticity, choice, joy and loyalty. And trust me, I did a lot of introspection to narrow it down to those 5. Of course, the top 3 manifestations for each category are: time <simplicity, systemization, effectiveness>, authenticity <awareness, self-realization, intuition>, choice <freedom, passion, balance>, joy <family/friends, health, nature> and loyalty <trust, quality time, reciprocity>. Money and security are goals, not values, and are nowhere near my top 10, so I have to figure out a way to resolve this. If you notice, neither is love, but I did the process and it is what it is: for me, loyalty is more important than love. What was funny, is that my group really didn't want to put the time in to do the process; some did, some did not. But after the meeting, those that didn't before now see the value <haha> of doing the value process and plan to do it this weekend. Values are what motivate us to action, so what are your top 5 values?
