Recently there was an interesting discussion in a group on ‘Relationships between Goals and Values’.
This post presents summary of interesting points:
Goals are understood and seen in the context of Action-Behavior, Time and Space.
Values are deeper and spread on a larger time canvass- many times through the entire life span of an individual
Goals that are in alignment with values, provide deeper connect with self-purpose and thus become meaningful.
Opposite may not give sense of satisfaction; they can be very transactional, overwhelming or draining.
Connect between Values-Purpose and Goals is very important. If certain Goals do not inspire us, if they do not give an Emotional Drive or Sense of Purpose- then it is a very good idea to sit back and reflect- “Is it really worth it? What is the trade off in accepting this goal with respect to time and effort? Should I be rather doing something else?”
Answers to these simple and powerful questions can be surprize you/
