Your Current List of Values

Your Current List of Values

Are you working with an outdated list of values? If so, you may be experiencing frustration. Get some insight here about how you can start to create more workflow efficiency in your life and career.

If you are feeling frustrated with your workflow efficiency, it may be because you are working with an outdated list of values.

While our core values remain the same throughout our lives, others may fluctuate based on life circumstances.

For instance, the daily flow of your life will be different if you are married than it is if you are single, and different still if you have children.

We also change and grow internally over the course of our lives as well.

Sometimes, people find themselves trying to fit new life circumstances into an old list of values.

This can create unnecessary tension and challenges that deplete your inner resources and mitigate your workflow efficiency.

That’s why my advice is to check in with yourself periodically to see if you need to modify your list of values.

Evaluate what methods and processes are still working for you and which ones may need a little tweaking or adjustment.

I call this the test and tweak strategy.

The test and tweak strategy is also good to use when trying out a new process, tool, or methodology.

Let’s say you’ve been hearing about a new work tool from your colleagues so you decide to try it out.

Don’t label yourself unsuccessful if it doesn’t work as well as you had hoped.

Instead, test it out and then tweak it in the field to determine what aspects work best for you and your particular needs.

We’re all different, so just because it works for someone else doesn’t mean it will provide the exact same benefit for you.

Tweaking is an aspect of creativity.

When you have an experimental mindset, you are able to eliminate ways of doing things that don’t work for you and keep the ones that do work (or develop new ones).

Give yourself permission to make adjustments instead of trying to force something that just doesn’t make sense in your current situation.



Is your work situation frustrating you? Do you hate your job, but have no idea what to do instead? Attempting to navigate those waters without support is not fun (yes, I do know, but that’s another story). I’m excited to announce that I’ve created The Job I Love Toolkit, with all the resources you’ll need to finally clarify how to get paid to do you.TM To be the first to hear more details, join the VIP Wait List.
