Weekly check-ins for your values

Liked Coach Yourself to Live Out Your Values by Anna Havron (

What I’ve learned over the past year is that, for me, a weekly review is the key to helping me live out my values.

I like the idea to pick one or two specific small actions to focus on a week.

What I have been doing recently is designating a specific time each week to do things that are important to me but I might otherwise skip:

  • Check in with a friend on Thursday after work – I’ll often think of a friend during the week but forget to reach out, so I’ve got a specific time to remind myself
  • Listen to new music on Tuesday after dinner
  • Read non-fiction ten minutes a day, with a reminder at 7:30pm
