Every once in a while it’s good to sit back and take a good, long look at life. Here’s a simple, easy way to think about where you are. It’s called the wheel of life.
First, draw a circle. Make it plenty big enough to write in.
Now divide the circle into eight pieces. You do that by drawing a line straight up and down, then one side by side. That makes four pieces. Then draw two more lines diagonally each way to divide the four into eight.
Now write these in the eight sections:
— Family and friends
— Significant other/ romance
— Fun and recreation
— Personal growth
— Physical environment
Now, take several minutes and think about how your life is going in each area. After you’ve given it some thought, rate it on a scale of 1-10.
Then think of the center of the circle as zero and the outside of the circle as 10. Draw a line in each area where you rated.
Now take a look at the circle. That’s your wheel of life.
Notice if it’s uneven or pretty round.
See which areas you make you feel good and which areas need some work. Perhaps you need some coaching to help your wheel ride a little smoother.
