This week, I have an interview with Dave Stachowiak, and we're talking about core values. You can find out more about Dave at

 Here are some of the questions he answers:

  1. What are core values?
  2. Why are core values important?
  3. How many core values should you have?
  4. How do  you start choosing core values?

 We also had a question submitted by Mark Sieverkropp:

Can you describe the difference between a mission statement and core values? I have a feeling that they are distinct and both have a place, but I'm curious to know how you define both and what role they play in a personal, family or organizational life.

Here are some of the links from the show:

Today, I have Mark Sieverkropp with me. The conversation was pre-recorded, and there was some background noise and a couple times of poor connection. Regardless of a couple minor issues, it was a great conversation about the importance of purpose. Below are some of the things we talked about. You'll need to listen to get the full content.

Quote by John Maxwell in “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”:

People say there are two great days in a person’s life: the day you were born and the day you discover why. I want to encourage you to seek what you were put on this earth to do. Then pursue it with all your effort.

  • Purpose answers the question "Why?"
  • Purpose gives us reason.
  • Your purpose needs to be bigger than yourself.
  • Joshua's purpose was bigger than himself
  • God has a purpose and plan for each of us
  • If we don't fulfill our purpose, God finds someone else (Esther 4:14)

Next episode, we will have a great interview with John G. Miller - the QBQ Guy! He has a new book out called "Parenting the QBQ Way" and we'll be discussing some of the principles from it.

Please be sure to share this with your social circles and tell your friends and family.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave on the blog.
