Session 3

Exploring Your Values,
Defining Your Vision

Gain a "sense of equilibrium" in the now, as well as a compass to move forward, as you investigate your personal core values. Then, proactively consider the road ahead; write with gratitude for how far you've come, as well as with anticipation and intention for what's to come.

HOMEWORK — PART A

Core Value Discovery

To get started, click to download this Values Pack PDF, which contains all of the files needed for this section:

1. Explore Your Values

  • Spend time with the VALUES LIST, noticing the words that resonate the most, as a reflection of your guiding beliefs.

  • As a word clicks with you, circle it. Don't overthink it!

  • Feeling a word that's not on the list? Add it!

2. Group Similar Values

  • Transfer the circled words to the GROUP AND IDENTIFY TABLE, grouping like items as you go, in any way that makes sense to you.

  • Create a maximum of five groupings.
    Have more than five? Drop the least important (to you) grouping(s).

3. Pick a Representative Value

  • Indicate one word within each column of your GROUP AND IDENTIFY TABLE that is the best representation of that grouping of values. 

  • Again, don’t overthink it ― there are no right or wrong answers. You are defining the answer that feels right to you.

4. Add Action

  • Transfer your representative values to the right column of the ADD ACTION TABLE.

  • Then, add a verb to to the left column of the ADD ACTION TABLE, for each value, so you can see what it looks like as an actionable core value.

  • Think carefully about the action that will help you keep your value as an active practice in your life.

  • (You may need to adjust the grammatical form of your representative value to better fit your verb.)

5. Prepare to Share

  • Plan to share back your value list in our next session.
    (And how the process was for you!)

HOMEWORK — PART B

Letter from the Future
What will your contribution be?

Imagine yourself at ninety years old, having lived a full life with a personally fulfilling career (whatever that means to you!)

Write a letter to the “you of today” from the “you of the future.” 

1. Write Your Letter

  • Describe everything you have 
accomplished in your personal life and 
work, how that growth makes you feel, 
and of what you are most proud.

Allow your vision to paint a mental picture of your life in the future. Focus on what matters most to you, what you stand for, and who you are committed to becoming. Let your imagination flow — tap into a creative spirit.
(See KHP example.)

2. Prepare to Share

  • Plan to share however much of your letter you are comfortable with in our next session.
    (Again, share your process if you’d like!)
