Evaluating Your Priorities

Finding What's Important To You

The following exercise involves choosing the life and work values that you consider to be most relevant to your actual needs. We recommend that you print out this page and underline the values that are most important to you.

Choose what is most important to you?

List your five most important values (in no particular order).


Rank the five in order of importance.

NOTE: If you find this task difficult, write each value on a separate piece of paper. Of the five listed values, discard the least important one. Complete this task until there is only one piece of paper left. That should be the value that you consider to be most important.

Ask will the job(s) you've been offered meet these high priority needs?

NOTE: If you have received more than one offer that meets your needs, you may need to evaluate the offers more closely using the Comparing Offers exercise.
