What is a Value Goal?


A value goal is a goal that is based on your personal principles or standards of behavior; your judgment of what is important in life. The value goal triangle was originally developed for my own personal use. I have always been a goal setter but I wanted to understand why some goals are not reached. I also wanted to understand why others are reached with little effort. I designed the value goal triangle over years of research because I believe people need a simple way of understanding to master leadership. This accomplishment of mastering leadership is foundational for great management and reaching your personal goals.

I believe a lot has been written about leadership; managers often struggle to reach organizationally established goals. The value goal triangle has a specific design that guides your critical thinking to establish a plan for achievement. Bottom line: understanding the value goal triangle gets you big results!

Value goals are a combination of your personal values and goals. They are formed by knowing why you set goals and why you hold certain values. Value goals are the top goals you have for your life and are a practical guide to refining your goals for achievement. You can improve your ability to lead using value goals. Beauce you are setting value goals, you will realize these value goals define who you are. They are a discovery process that measures your priorities, character, and relationships.

Management, time, costs, and scope make up the structural components of your value goals. The combination of these components forms the structural systems for your value goals. For instance, the combination of your management philosophy and your understanding of time becomes your time management system. Your understanding of time married to what things costs become your objectives. Lastly, when you combine the components of costs and scope you get your ethical foundation. This is the ethical foundation system you run your life with.

Combining your structural systems builds your structural plan. For instance, focusing your time management system on reaching your objectives is the plan to achieve your goals. In addition, your ethical foundation system combined with your objectives becomes the roadmap to your personal values. When you combine your values and your goals you get your top value goals. These are your goals defined with why you want to accomplish them. As you can see value goals shape your focus.

You take into consideration the requests of everyone in the form of a scope. These people may be your friends, family, coworkers, or anyone who has asked you to do something. Your responsibility is to clearly identify the scope and align these inputs with your personal values. These decisions to act or not act are filtered by your ethical foundation.

How to Eliminate Entitlement

A “How To Plan” For Parents of Spoiled Real Estate Children:  When I was younger, my neighbor had a crazy dog. Every day this dog would wait by the side of the road for vehicles to drive by. When a vehicle drove by, this crazy mutt would run down the road, barking and chasing everyone’s vehicle that drove by.  On one rainy day, I asked my neighbor “Do you think the dog is ever going to chase down one of  those vehicles?” My neighbor replied, “That’s not what worries me. What worries me is what he would do if he ever caught one.” Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless goals. Meaningless goals are goals that are not backed by values. Before you start defining your family goals you first need to define your values.  Goals not backed by values are meaningless and might as well be considered criminal activity.  If you want to define the life goals you first need to define your values. The framework for setting goals back by values can be defined in the value go

3 Ways You Might Be Raising Entitled Children When You Work in Real Estate

And What to Do About it.    A family was having a good time on the lake. It was a beautiful summer day.  The warm sun from the sunny summer sky beat down on my exposed arms covered in sunscreen.  “Summer is not my favorite season, but at moments like this take the trophy,” expressed Mr. Relaxed.  Resting on his boat he observed the kinetic chaos of boats that had turned the summer’s peacefulness into a commercial expression of fun!   The cloudless day was perfect to enjoy with the family. The light blue sky seemed to smile at the brilliant blue-green waves.  “It feels so picture-perfect,” said the little one.  After an exhilarating boat ride, the family parked the boat in a cove and enjoyed swimming, and eating their lunch.  A father, mother, and daughter sat down to enjoy lunch, their sweet little girl was holding two pieces of cantaloupe in her hands. The mother leaned over and asked with a smile, “Beautiful little girl, could you give your mommy one of your pieces of cantaloupe?” Th
