How to use the wheel of life:


  1. Print out the above wheel of life image: wheel_of_life.png
  2. Grab a pen.
  3. Rate each of the areas by marking one of the ten rings in the section based on how well you feel like you are doing in that area of life.
    1. 1 means not satisfied. Terrible. Couldn’t be worse. You weigh 500 pounds. You have a hoarder house. You’ve got $50,000 in credit card debt.
    2. 10 is highly satisfied. You just ran the Boston marathon. You’re financially free. [3] You married the woman of your dreams.
  4. Once you’ve made your marks, take your pen and connect all the lines:
    1. zack-wol
    2. You can also shade in the sections:nikida-wol
  5. Pick the 1 or 2 areas you ranked the lowest.
  6. Take a walk and brainstorm ways you can make improvements to it.
  7. Find one improvement you can commit to making.
