I recently ran across this quote:

The only way to avoid a life of confusion, being torn between arbitrary

priorities and making decisions that are completely random, is to find a

set of values that is both positive and dependable. A person who is living

in a state of wellness—a life characterized by strong, healthy, consistent

standards of what truly matters—is someone who has taken the time to

understand and affirm his/her authentic priorities

-Robert Hansel

Last week I was talking with a friend about her values.  Part of our discussion focused on realizing that as you become clear about what you value, it also helps clarify and guide decision-making.

Are you clear on what you value and why those things are a value?
