Live A Life Of “No Regrets”

It is fascinating to have the opportunity to work every day with leaders of companies that are focused on driving a culture of servant leadership. They truly care at the core of their people. I get to see practices that are very unique and unusual in mainstream Corporate America.

One such practice is an organization that carves out 3 hours of company time for employees to work on discerning their Personal Purpose, Vision, and Values. When introducing this training to employees, the organization’s owner shares that he wants them to live a life of “No Regrets”. He wants them to think through what they want their life to stand for – Why they exist. He wants them to think about what they want to create and achieve in their life – Dreams. And he wants them to think about their core values and how they want to live their life – Behaviors.

What a gift! How many of you work for a company that creates the time, space, and environment for every employee in the organization to think through these foundational aspects of their life? What a unique way to enhance your employee’s lives.

Employee’s Personal Benefits:
  • Understanding of how much they are valued by the organization
  • Leads to a purpose-driven, values-based life
  • Enhanced passion in their work
  • Enhances relationships with co-workers
  • Creates accountability partners for achievement of goals
  • High performance
 Organization’s Benefits:
  • Enhances energy in the workplace as people feel valued
  • Enhances relationships which

    leads to high performance

  • Attracts more great people to want to join the organization
  • Builds trust as people see the words of the organization’s purpose carried out in action

I could talk for days on the impact that this process has on people for having had this opportunity. I know I wish I would have thought about these important aspects much earlier in my life than I did. However, it is never too late. The time is right now.

Not working for a company that creates this opportunity is no excuse for not taking the time to reflect and discern your personal purpose, vision, and values. If you haven’t already done so I greatly encourage you to seriously consider it. I dedicate an entire section of my book Leading Jesus’ Way to help people with this process.

Ensure yourself that you live a life of “No Regrets.” Get intentional about discerning these foundational aspects of your life, and it will lead to true fulfillment in your personal and professional life.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.   Philippians 4:8
