Today’s exercise is an exploration of personal values by looking at your purpose themes. Think back to when you were a child — what did you want to be when you grew up? Did that dream change over time? If so, to what did your focus shift?

Make a list of all these aspirations you’ve had over the course of your life. When you have this list, examine it and ask yourself: “What do all these dreams have in common?”

We can learn a lot about what we value and care about by finding the common ground beneath our aspirations. Maybe we value discovery/learning, or aid/helping.

More importantly, now that you have some insight into your values, what will you do with this information? How will it inform or guide your actions going forward?
