What's your level of satisfaction in life today?

Where to start?

Let's begin with taking a measurement of how satisfied you are in all the different areas of your life. It’s not a test, and no one but you is looking! It’s simply a snapshot of how you are feeling about your level of satisfaction in life today.

The Wheel of Life was introduced to me during coaches training. There’s a copy online and in the picture at the top of this article. Go ahead, print one out for yourself, it's my gift to you.

The eight sections represent balance in life

To gauge your level of satisfaction, look at the center of the wheel as 0 and the outer edge as 10. Now, rank your level of satisfaction with each life area by connecting the lines to create a new outer edge.

The new perimeter of the circle represents your Wheel of Life. It’s not the goal to score a perfectly round perimeter. Notice where you transition between sections of your life and how smooth or bumpy the transition is.

How bumpy would the ride be if this were a real wheel?

Would it be jolting, jarring, uncomfortable, rough, irregular, choppy, bouncy, bumpy, and uneven with many patches raised above the rest? Think about each life area and ask yourself:

  • Is this area family/job/hobby/home I'm rating highly really satisfying?

  • Does high profile job/house/partner/hobby secretly bore me?

  • Does my side hustle/hobby/partner make me feel excited and happy, but scored low?
