Aligning Goals With Your Values, self help article by Carol Halsey

Happiness and wellbeing personal development article about self help, happiness, personal development, self growth. size=1>

I read an article recently about why it is important to align goals with our values.

It seems this salesman set his goals for the coming year.

He had a target for volume of sales and acquired new business.

He then planned his work schedule to accomplish these goals.

It would involve a great deal of travelling, with frequent weekends away from home.

Although he was successfully implementing his plan and having positive results towards meeting his goals, he was not overjoyed.

Why? It had nothing to do with his job, but had all to do with his family life.

You see, he put great value on being with his family.

He missed time spent with his wife and sharing memorable experiences with his two sons. He was away from home too much.

When he realized this, he changed is travelling schedule so that he could be with his family every weekend, on holidays and occasionally during the week.

It meant working longer hours when travelling, but to him that was okay.

His adjustment put his goals in line with his values, and both his business and his family life flourished.

Are your goals in line with your values?

It is necessary first to identify what your values are, both personally and professionally.

How important is your family and other relationships, your health, your integrity and honesty, respect for others, meaningful career.

These are only a few values to consider.

Denis Waitly put it nicely, “Happiness, wealth and success are by-products of goal setting, they cannot be the goal themselves.”

If you do not have written goals for your career and your life, it is time to start.

Review each goal with respect to your values.

If they don’t line up, make some adjustments.

Next it is important to plan your time to meet your goals.

This is a topic for another time.
