What you’ll learn in this course

Discovering your inner compass is all about building the foundation for an intentional and happy life.

You’ll learn to define values, recognise that not all values are good and values changes over time and why they do.

The exercises will help reconnect with yourself. In documenting what is important to you and why it is, you’ll start a journey of discovery. You’ll take a look at your past to see what excited you or made you happy. Then we’ll look at your future and what can be.

You’ll gain inspiration from your heroes, mentors and influencer in your life. You’ll learn what makes you sad and down. These are all important steps to gain a better understanding of your values.

What you’ll need to invest

While this course is free of charge, creating a life you love (and deserve) still needs an investment from you – your time and energy. If you can’t make that investment right now, you may want to come back another time.

For those of you who are ready: Discover Your Inner Compass comprises two lessons, and two exercises, plus one optional exercise if you’d like to do a bit more than the minimum. There is also a brief quiz at the end of each lesson to confirm your understanding.

Watching the lessons and completing the quizzes takes about 25 minutes in total. For the exercises, you should set aside about an hour each. It’s important that you take as much time as you need. What you put in is what you get out.

Who Your Instructors Are

Hi there, we are Paul and Sandra, the Gen-X couple behind Minimalist Journeys.

Realising that our comfortable, middle-class life in Sydney, Australia wasn’t really what we wanted, we embarked on a life-changing journey: from assessing our values and discovering minimalism to a nomadic life full of eye-opening and humbling experiences.

Adopting a values-based lifestyle has changed our lives for the better, and we are now focused on helping others achieve the same.

On our website and in our online courses, we talk about our and other peoples’ journeys to and with a values-based life and provide practical advice and simple, tested tools that help our audience live more intentionally, sustainably and happier – whatever their life circumstances.

We love making a difference and helping others succeed. Come and join us to experience more by living with less.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I care about personal values?

Being aware of your core values is vitally important. They help you understand who you are and guide you in the direction you want to go in life. When you are aware of what’s important to you, life doesn’t just happen to you – YOU are in control.

What happens after I sign up?

Once you signed up, you will have access to the lessons, quizzes and exercises; and can complete them in your own time. You will also have access to the workbook that comes with the course. It’s a great reference, and you’ll need it to complete the quizzes and exercises.

How long do I have access to the course?

Once enrolled, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like and for as long as we offer the course.

When does the course start and finish?

It is a completely self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.

I already know my core values. Why should I do this course?

You are ahead of most other people, so well done first of all. If it’s been a while since you last reviewed your values, you may still benefit from doing our course. If just to refresh your memory and bring awareness back to your values. Plus the course is free – so what have you got to lose?

How long will the course take to complete?

Watching the lessons and completing the quizzes takes about 25 minutes in total. For the exercises, you should set aside about an hour each. It’s important that you take as much time as you need. What you put in is what you get out.

Why is the course offered for free?

We are offering Discover Your Inner Compass for the very first time. As such, we’ll be asking our first round of students for feedback to make the course even better in future. So, in return for the feedback and for a limited time only, we’re offering the course for free. Students have lifetime access to the course, so once enrolled will be able to take advantage of any changes we may make based on the collective feedback.

What if I am unhappy with the course?

We want our courses to meet the needs of our students. If for any reason you are not happy with the course please get in touch with us and we’ll work something out.

Will the instructors be available if I get stuck?

Our priority is for you to succeed, so when you have specific questions about understanding and applying what you’re learning, we’ll absolutely do our best to help.

But to keep expectations clear, enrolling in our course doesn’t turn the instructors into your private 24/7 coaches. If you email us for help, we ask that you’re respectful of our time and more importantly, that you’re actually doing the work and not just asking questions to avoid the work.

For students who are further along, additional coaching options will be made available in future.

Still unsure?
