At some point, you are going to have to live them out loud. Involve other people, take a stand when crunch-time comes.
Values can be a great way of bringing people together, they can really help rally people around a common cause to achieve something magnificent together. .
They also help to connect better emotionally.
Sometimes, you are going to have conversations to draw the line, and they might not always go well.

This is not a dress-rehearsal, this is your life. Play the long game and look after yourself.
