My Values

Values are extremely important to me. They are my guide stars, my navigation points in life and how I evaluate whether or not I am on course in my daily interactions. I review my values regularly, and consider updating them every year.

In 2021, I went through several months of evaluating my values then finding the right words to articulate my values in ways that I feel are meaningful to me and helpful to others. They are as follows:


I begin with the perspective that I don’t know more than I do know. I avoid assuming, prejudging, and telling. I inquire, taking in data and information, and transforming it into knowledge and wisdom.

We are most wise and powerful when we seek the What, and:

  • Engage people and experiences with curiosity.
  • Gather knowledge, information, and wisdom from everyone.
  • Process and apply what we learn for personal growth and to help others.




I can accomplish nothing without caring about the people involved in every situation. I develop my greatest value when I fully care about myself and others in equal measure.

We find our Why  when we focus on care. We come to:

  • Be compassionate – it is the lifeblood of humanity.
  • Take care of yourself and others.
  • Exercise generosity in sharing attention, resources, and possibilities.


The right actions position us to for the greatest impact and success. Appropriate action is our rightful exercise of power for good.

When we act, we deploy How  we make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. Our actions are successful when we:

  • Choose the best actions based on knowledge and compassion.
  • Know that proactive action is imperative, for inaction is action.
  • Realize that acting alone is good, but acting in concert with others is better.
