In the Values and Priorities workshop we dive deep into how clarifying our values and establishing what our priorities are can change our life for the better. It allows us to live a life of integrity and fulfillment.
Values are words that embody what is important to us, providing an answer to the question “What do I value most in my life?” Here is a great definition:
Values are the characteristics of a fully lived life from the inside out.
Even if they are complex and intangible higher-level functions, they are our personal rules and standards. They frequently reflect our views on what is good and bad, right, and wrong. Similarly, they guide our every decision, and their satisfaction or violation can elicit strong emotional reactions.
According to Tony Robbins, values “are like a compass that directs your life.” They motivate and demotivate, and they justify behavior. They frequently refer to emotional states:
These are our “must-haves” in life, because when we live according to what we most value, we can see that this is the foundation for our beliefs. When our choices are in sync, we experience congruence – “life is good” – and are fulfilled. If we do not meet this standard, we may become angry, fearful, or sad.
We can prioritize our values into core values by selecting our top 3 values. Having the right core values can help us make better decisions, be more productive, achieve more, and, perhaps most importantly, love and be loved. They’re quite significant. And studies have shown that core values have a slew of other advantages.
Priorities are the things that matter to us most. In this workshop, we uncover a powerful process to start identifying our priorities. To effectively manage our time and know what matters while progressing toward your goals, we must have a clear list of priorities. If we take on too many tasks on a regular basis, you may eventually become stressed.
Values are so deeply ingrained in our language, thought, and behavior patterns that philosophers have been fascinated by them for over a thousand years. Nonetheless, they have proven to be so quick-silvery” and complex that, despite their crucial role in human motivation, we are still horribly ignorant of the laws that govern them. (Toffler, 1969)
One of the most perplexing anomalies in the field of consumer research has been the lack of focus on human values. This is especially perplexing given that most serious students of human behavior have long argued that values play an important role in personal, social, and cultural activity. When attitude researchers have used the term “values,” it has frequently been confused with the concept of product attributes. While a few recent studies have found a significant relationship between values and consumer behavior (Scott and Lamont, 1972; Vinson and Munson, 1976; Henry, 1976; Vinson, Scott, and Lamont, 1977), consumer researchers have generally taken a hands-off approach to the value construct.
Marketing practitioners have become highly skilled at creating advertising and mass communication appeals that include allusions to important human values. Indeed, we would argue that marketing appeals have historically been highly value oriented. These individuals to understand what most marketing academics do not: human values play an important role in consumer behavior.
What could account for the disparity between what marketers do and what academics study? One plausible explanation is that academics have almost entirely focused their attention and technical skills on consumers’ more rational beliefs about tangible product attributes and marketing characteristics such as color, price, taste, and availability. A counterargument, but much less widely held, is that practitioners may have forged ahead for years. According to attitude studies, practitioners are appealing to deep, emotion-laden values and providing powerful stimulation to sales.
Maslow advanced his hierarchical groupings of needs in the mid-1950s into those concerned with safety, security, love, self-esteem, and self-actualization (Maslow, 1954). Morris (Handy, 1970) discussed value theory in depth and created a list of thirteen “ways to live,” which were conceptions of the good life that respondents were asked to rate in terms of liking.
If we go back in time, specifically to the 14th century, we can find the first use of the Middle French and Latin equivalent of priority word.
Late 14c., prioritie, “state of being earlier (than something else), prior occurrence or existence,” from Old French priorite (14c.) and directly from Medieval Latin prioritatem (nominative prioritas) “fact or condition of being prior” (source also of Spanish prioridad), from Latin prior (see prior (adj.).
From c. 1400 as “precedence in right, place, or rank.” In 1897 Century, Dictionary wrote “Priority is the state or fact of coming first in order of time; what little use it has beyond this meaning is only a figurative extension,” but in 20c. the sense shifted toward “fact or condition of coming first in importance or requiring immediate attention; thing regarded as more important than another or others.” Wyclif (early 15c.) renders prioritas into (Middle) English as furtherhead.
Today, there has been a large emphasis on the importance of understanding our own personal values and identifying our priorities in order to live a happy life.
In marketing literature, there are numerous indications of a growing interest in personal values, as opposed to product and marketing attributes. The “Second Washington Social Indicators Conference to Explore Business Response to New Values” is one example (Marketing News, 1973). Furthermore, there appears to be a growing body of research on the subject.
Scott and Lamont (1972) demonstrated that global values, product evaluative and descriptive beliefs, and domain-specific values are th
