Living our values means understanding. It means we have to think about our values and understand what are their effects.
It means analyzing why we hold them.
It means deciding how to apply those values to our lives. It means eliminating old habits and creating new ones.
It means eliminating the distractions and focusing on what is most important and consistent with those values.
It means doing, changing. Not talking, not pretending.
It means destroying and creating. It is creativity. It means where you end up may be nothing like you imagined at the start.
Fighting for our values means forcing others to live our values within the cross-hairs of our loaded guns. Whether they like it or not.
