The wheel of life…

I start my personal goal setting and planning for the next year in October, and one of the first exercises I do is the ‘wheel of life’.

If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a neat visual way to score out the major areas of your life you want to reflect on and improve in.

Those areas might be:

– Finance
– Family
– Parenting
– Partnership
– Physical health
– Spiritual
– Career
– Hobbies
– Friendship
– Personal development

I’ve attached a picture of mine so you can see what it looks like.

…and here are the basic steps:

  1. Reflect on the year past in each category – what went well/didn’t go well
  2. Score where you are right now
  3. Score where you want to be
  4. Make a plan for what you want to do differently in the next year

It’s simply and easy, and the only thing that might hold you back is that it takes a bit of time to do it properly.

What’s a thing you like to do to help you plan and set clear goals for the year ahead?
