Early on as a Psychotherapist I realized that relationship building and communication was the key to having better results with my clients. Now as a Professional Business Organizer and Coach I understand that helping people understand what they value in life, besides a paycheck and their favorite sport or tv program, is the most important part of becoming an organized, high producing human being. Once a person figures out what they value in life, then and only then can they set goals.
When I ask people "What do you value in life?" I usually end up with blank stare and a shrug. People are so out of touch with what they really want in life, and it tremendously affects their behavior, motivation and drive. If you don't have goals to reach a valued aspect of life, what's the point?
When a person figures out they value being rich, status, spirituality, leisure time, time with their loved ones, health, vacations, gardening, athletics or whatever ticks their tock they will be able to set achievable goals. Detailed goals, on getting more of what someone values, and then fulfilling the goals will get you that time to buy a nicer watch, go on a speaker circuit tour, start a successful business, read and finish a book, lay out by the pool, more time in the sack, better food options, Tahiti, and or a blossoming tomato plant. Thinking and even talking about the things you want (value) is not enough. Once the things you value manifest you are more inclined to be a better partner, parent, friend and or employee. Knowing the difference between what you want or need will lead you to understand what you value.
