Assignment 1: Understanding Your Values
Due Week 3 and worth 100 points.
“I said to myself, “Is life about winning football games, or it is it about my kids and the family?”
Throughout his career as a leader, Coach models the theory that discovering your purpose isn’t about trying to be a carbon copy of your favorite role model or idol, it’s about understanding what you truly value in life and why. Once you’ve taken the time to identify the values that are important to YOU and where they come from, you’ll understand more about how you interact with the world.
This assignment will help you identify how the different groups in your life have impacted your values and how understanding that impact can help you better understand yourself and your purpose.
