Podcast Opening:

Welcome to Do The Hard Thing Episode 20. I am Jason Archer… creator, freedom seeker, leader of self | full time student and part time teacher of self mastery, and today is all about Values.

The goal, as always, is to dive deeper into how we humans can more effectively move toward the outcomes we want. Usually, this means getting uncomfortable and doing hard things. So, turn up the volume, put down the distractions and let’s kick this off…

Summary Description:

If you’ve ever started down a path to create something meaningful in your life, and for whatever reason found yourself not moving toward the outcome you claim to want… like there’s a part of you that simply refuses to move, Then this podcast is for you. Do The Hard Thing is an exploration in human movement.




“Values are the deep-seated beliefs that motivate behaviors and determine people’s compatabilities with each other. People will fight for their values, and they are likely to fight with people who don’t share them.”

– Ray Dalio, Founder of Bridgewater.



★ What Are Values?

  • What makes a value a value.
  • Values vs. Abilities vs. Skills.
  • Values and hierarchy.

★ Why Do Values Matter?

  • The importance of alignment.
  • The wife story.
  • What we are building out.

★ When Values Collide.

  • Values are difficult to change.
  • Opposing values.
  • Moving smoothly



The values we hold are difficult to change and are not very fluid. The process of getting to know oneself and aligning values with those you intend to work closely with


The question today is this: Where in your life are your values not aligned with people or processes that are close to you? Work, fitness, relationships… where do you see an opportunity to apply a change to your benefit?

Once you have your answer, you must honor the work and practice.

Apply the concept: Come up with at least one way you can use what you just learned to step into a place that requires you to step toward your new more favorable identity in any role you take on.

As Rumi said, “As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.”
