  • Does self-controlhelp you determine your battles and how you fight them?

Finally, take time to understand why the Why either resonates or dis-harmonizes. This is the route to understanding whether Values are in sync or whether Values are likely to create interpersonal challenges and Culture problems. 

(I mean - Culture problems within your business, your family, or your community.)
