Create your own value compass. Download and use our interactive worksheets digitally or print out if preferred or draw your own.

The principle is that when you are caught in a bind of a big decision, unsure of which direction to take, you can refer to your value compass and check in with your top five values.

So, design your own. Make it colourful. Place images in each segment or just the word. Make it as unique, special and individual as you like. The important thing here is that it means something to you and connects to your value strings from earlier.

You don’t have to have a top five, you can have three, four or five – you decide. Be clear in your choice and have fun as you make it.

Finally, cut it out with some scissors and keep it on you, inside your rucksack, handbag, or as a bookmark. You could even take a picture on your phone and use it as a screensaver.

We invite you to share some of your values in the comments.
