The Values Inventory
Julia Barbaro Coaching
Life is about choices and values. Our values reflect the things that matter the most to us. When we live our best life and our most authentic life, it is usually lived from our values. Our values are an important part of the decision process and really define who we are as people.
Think of things people cannot stop you from doing.
List several characteristics of when you were at your best (could be over the past two decades). In other words, you were living your best self out of your values.

Summarize Core Values: Now go back and think about your top Five values. These are your core values. List your Five top values.
You can literally take your core values list and use them as a guide in your decision making process. Your values become a guide for what you say “yes” to and what you say “no” to. A life that is in sync is a life that makes decisions consistent with one’s core values.
Would outsiders or friends guess what your top values are based on your lifestyle?
When you take a look at your daily and weekly activities, how do they reflect or conflict with your values? What changes do you need to make to live your life in concert with your core values?
How does looking at values change some priorities for you in regards to work, family, friends and even your faith?
Where do I need to grow and stretch as an individual? What new values do I need to attain?
