Tournament of values!

Every few years, I go through an exercise where I collect a giant list of values, virtues, and intentions and rank them. The whole endeavor is a pseudo-quantitative approach to something deeply qualitative, but it articulates what I’m finding meaningful and helps me choose how I spend time, energy, and money. In the past, it’s been especially useful for helping me come up with responses to tricky situations where I don’t immediately know what to do.
