This post is part of the working draft of the DriverlessCrocodile Toolkit (read more here). I’d love comments, links to resources related to the theme, and original contributions.
Another lens on personal values
If the obituary doesn’t work for you, try these simple questions:
- What do you love? What do you care (passionately) about?
- What makes you (righteously) angry?
- Who do you want to serve?
The power of these questions as a tool for thinking about your values comes when you ask “Why?”
Why do you love X?
What does Y mean to you?
What is it about these people that makes you want to serve them? What does that say about what’s important to you?
