This week’s episode is all about values: how we can identify what they are, why we might want to, and what impact they have on our wellbeing and our creative lives. Anna and Maria discuss how values can help us in our decision-making process and understand the WHY behind what we do. They also explore the ways ego, judgment, and comparison can get in the way of determining our true values, what happens when our values differ from those around us, and whether some values are better than others. And, because our hosts are detail-oriented language nerds, they discuss choosing specific words with particular resonance for YOU, and why that might be more helpful than having a huge list of all of the positive words you can think of.
This week’s quote:
“You may not be able to use a step-by-step guide to make every decision before you clear, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay lost. Instead of searching outside yourself for the map, look within yourself for the compass.” - Carolin Kelso Zook
