👉 Goals change, values rarely do

I’ve been looking into values-based planning and I think there is something in this. Goals themselves can be fleeting. There are bodies of research out that show that we as humans aren’t particularly good at predicting what we actually want. Although it’s quite rare for people to change their values. Your goal may be to lose weight but your values are that you want to live a healthy lifestyle. Your goal may be to reduce your hours, but your values are you want your family to be the centre of your life. Interesting to think about when setting objectives!
