The “Wheel of Life” is a powerful coaching tool that offers an effective way to see the big picture of our life and visualize how our energy and time are spread among some of its most important areas. We often focus disproportionally in one area while overlooking some of the others. But in order to be happy, it is important to have a satisfactory overall performance.
Below is the Life Wheel, a pizza-shaped graph, with each of its eight segments representing one major area of life:
- Personal development
- Free time and interests
- Social contribution
All you have to do is take some time to think and evaluate how well you do in each different area. Mark them from 1 to 10. Don’t try to give an accurate answer, just provide the answer that first comes to your mind.
When you are done with your evaluation and marking, take another moment to think how important each of these areas are to you at present. Mark their importance from 1-10.
That’s it! You finished. Now, prepare a drink, sit in a relaxed posture and do some introspection which will give you important awareness about what these results actually mean to you.
