Which Side are You On?

When clients come to me for help making a decision, once they’ve described the conflict I ask: which side are you on?

The answer is only important for me to understand a little about their values.

When the conflict is about values, it’s always good to clarify what is most important to you right now.

For example:

  • You are trying to decide between continuing with your own dieting regime or spending several hundred dollars a month on a dieting program that several friends have had great success using.
  • Sit down with paper and pen and write down the reasons you feel your own dieting method is right for you.
  • What about this do you value?
  • Continue by writing down reasons the new method might be good for you and why you’re considering it.
  • You may feel you don’t deserve to spend money on dieting.
  • You may feel you ought to be able to diet on your own.
  • Write down why your way is not good for you.

You can see where this is going…by writing down all the angles, you can see where your true values resonate.
