The pyramid in Fig. 4.1 identifies the steps that lead from identifying values to accomplishing daily tasks ( Smith, 1994). Everything starts with values, which are sometimes called principles or beliefs. Long-term goals are developed by translating principles and beliefs into long-term achievements. Long-term goals, in turn, are attained through a series of intermediate goals. Finally, the intermediate goals are attained through a series of specific, goal-oriented daily tasks.
