The aloha spirit is alive and well. I am speaking to you again from the beautiful Island of Hawaii. Even though I am on vacation, I am doing some work to do, and really pacing myself because I believe we all need some down time to re-charge and refresh. The pace of life is much more relaxed here and I have come to really appreciate the Hawaiian culture and values. The aloha spirit is everywhere and that prompted me to do some further research on the Hawaiian value system and to ask you the following question. What do you truly value and when was the last time you sat down and wrote down your values and what you truly appreciate in your life. Our lives are busy and we go through the motions and today is just a gut check for you. Our values provide direction and core values are our fundamental beliefs. Here in the islands,The Hawaiian value system determines priorities, guides their interactions with others, establishes their behavior and is centered around the Hawaiian culture and traditions.
