Aligning Values

Last week we looked into a destination (purpose) of South Padre Island with my family.  We saw how clear values of unity and family intimacy affected my behavior; and the way in which I pursued the destination (purpose) was affected by those clear values.

Looking at an excerpt from Leadership Forum, we will see the reward and cost associated with our values:

Not only do values provide our DNA, that is who belongs, but they serve as an alignment tool.  Values are celebrated and rewarded, recognized and reproved.  Everyone wants to know where the bell is located in order to ring it.  When values are clearly defined they need to be enforced.  In your development of  personal values you need to see the inherent reward or cost associated with your values.

What is the reward to living out the value of family intimacy on this vacation trip?

What is the cost of NOT living out the value of family intimacy on this vacation trip?
