Find a piece of blank paper and a pen. Prepare your sheet by drawing a circle and then dividing it into 8 sections, like pieces of a pie.
Reflect on the 8 dimensions of your life that are most important to you. You can consider the roles you play—as a parent, a spouse, a sibling, a friend, a coach, a colleague—or you can consider areas in your life that are most important to you, like your job, family, art, travel, or education. Label each section of your circle with one of these categories. (It's okay to leave one blank, you may think of something to add later.)
Some examples to get you started:
Rate your level of satisfaction within each of these areas on a scale of 1 (not at all satisfied) and 10 (it couldn’t get any better) and make a mark on your circle for each of your sections - 1 is the very center and 10 is the outer edge of the circle. Fill in your circle below each mark and continue until you’ve filled in each of your sections.
Take a moment and reflect on your wheel.
Now consider the one or two areas of your life where you feel that making a change would have the greatest positive impact on your wheel overall.
Now you're ready to make a commitment.
