Personal Core Values

Personal Core Values

Posted on September 20, 2021

Heather and I recently had a conversation about "who are today's Fred Rogers and Bob Ross"? It seems that there aren't any such prominent role models today that seem to be so wholesome, caring, and just good (both on screen and off). As we probe this further we do find some other examples that perhaps fit the bill (Steve Irwin, Dolly Parton, and Betty White were all suggested). It doesn't take long before we question this person or that person, and we need to define some values on which we're going to determine who deserves to be on the list or not. After further reflection, I decided that this is a good exercise to explore our personal core values. With our company retreat coming up, knowing our personal core values will help us be prepared for updating our company core values.

At Gozynta, our company motto is “We understand that all software sucks, even ours. Our mission is to make it suck a little less each and every day.”

This motto developed organically, but it has its roots in the values that I’m trying to build the company on.
