- Try to balance your basic needs for autonomy, competence, relatedness, security, and self-esteem.
- Choose a goal that is in line with these needs, as well as your deepest self and talents, and that helps the larger community or world.
- Learn self-regulatory strategies and cultivate your character strengths to make efficient progress toward your goals.
- Constantly listen to your organismic valuing process, and modify your goals and personality as necessary.
