My values and goals


Experiences over things

I enjoy new experiences, this is almost to my detriment. As an example, I find it hard to walk past a new fancy cafe without walking in. I try not to be materialistic and attached to my possessions. I do not achieve this all of the time but it means I prefer to buy second hand, I’m not sentimental towards my possessions and I try to buy only what I need.

Community and culture

Adding value to others

Continuous learning and growth

Sustainable living

Now values don’t have to be perfect, they are inspirational. This is what I aspire to be. Sometimes I don’t get them right all of the time but when faced with a difficult decision, hopefully I can use my values to help guide me.
