“The secret to understanding your priorities in values. Values are the bumpers on the bowling alley of life. They determine our boundaries-how far we’ll go on questionable issues. Knowing what matters-what you value-is absolutely key to living a life of meaning and purpose, and your values are critical steps to identifying your one thing,” (Cooke, 2012, p. 65-66).
