You have probably read about the importance of core values, both for business and in your personal life. Maybe you have even done a workshop on the topic. Identifying your core values is one thing. But, what are you doing on a daily basis to put them into action, so that your core values will truly become a part of you?
“What are you doing on a daily basis to put them into action, so that your core values will truly become a part of you?”
For most people I think we get stuck at the slogan version, “have integrity” “be kind” “work hard” and so on. The slogan version both sounds and looks good. But, it doesn’t say anything about how to implement that value on a daily basis. If you don’t have a clear daily map to guide you, how will you ever get to where you want to go? The difference is thinking that the top of the mountain probably looks good, compared to making it all the way up the mountain and enjoying the actual view. I think this key component is missed by most of us.
-Are you stuck at the “Slogan version”?
Excellent coaches are hard to come by, and I am always very happy when I find one that I think is worth listening to. Ben Bergeron belongs in that group, and I hope that this podcast will make you think about your core values and most importantly – how to implement them into daily actions. Even a small action put on rinse, wash, repeat will make a big impact given enough time.
Here is the link to the 30min podcast if you want to download it: Living Based on Core Values by Chasing Excellence.

Have fun chasing excellence this weekend! 😉
