Build your Wheel of Life

Build your Wheel of Life

There comes a moment in your life when a life review is necessary.

It may be because you don’t feel aligned with your purpose. Perhaps you want to understand how to get ahead after many setbacks in the past few years. Or maybe you just want to improve your life and don’t know where to start.

Whatever the reason, a life review is always a good idea.

So, in this issue, I will show you how to build a Wheel of Life to rate every section of your life and see what you can improve. And you will see how a simple strategy can give you immediate and massive growth.

What makes you feel progress?

What makes you feel progress?

Have you ever wondered what makes you feel progress in life?

Which are the things you do that give you feedback for improvement?

  1. You must feel your current day is better than the previous ones.
  2. You must feel the balance between the different areas of your life.
  3. And you must find joy in your path.

You won’t feel progress if any of those concepts are missing because it will drag down all the other good things in your life. But the Wheel of Life is a great way to align all those concepts and give them balance.

How to Build a Wheel of Life (1)

How to Build a Wheel of Life (1)

The Wheel of Life is a coaching tool invented by Paul J. Meyer in the 60s. But, in the past few years, it gained a lot of visibility thanks to many coaches and self-improvement creators. So we will use a simpler version of it.

But if you want to read about the original Wheel of Life (with more options), you can go to Miroverse’s version .

Now, how can you build a Wheel of Life? It’s pretty simple. Don’t worry! (Also, you have the infographic at the end of the issue. You can download and use it for free.)

How to Build a Wheel of Life (2)

  1. Draw a circle and split it into three parts: health, relationships, and work.
  2. Split each section into three subsections. Health contains physical, mental, and spiritual health. Relationships are all about love, family, and friends. And you can split work into purpose, finance, and growth.
  3. Then, draw a long line to track your overall progress.
  4. Write your Level-10 goals for each section.
  5. Now, rate each of the sections in the wheel from 1 to 10.
  6. Then, circle three of the things you are not happy with. Those will be the fields you will try to improve in your life next.

How to Rate Your Overall Progress (1)

How to Rate Your Overall Progress (1)

Whenever I fill up a Wheel of Life, I always love to add one more section for Progress. I will use that section to track how much I improved in the past and how happy I feel with my current life.

If you already made a Wheel of Life before, you can track your progress based on that. But if this is your first time, rate this section based on the three concepts of progress we’ve already seen:

  1. Are you making progress toward the life of your dreams?
  2. Do you feel in balance with the goals in your life?
  3. Are you happy with your achievements so far?

How to Rate Your Overall Progress (2)

The answer to those questions should give you an idea of your progress in life. And since our lifespan is very long, I rate this step from 1 to 100.

Also, this parameter should give your overall life score. So it’s ok to score between 20 and 25 if you are still studying, for example. You should aim for a score between 25 and 70 during your working life. And aim at a score above 70 after retirement.

It should at least follow your age:

  • If your progress is above your age, you are doing great.
  • If it falls behind, you have to switch things up.

What are Level-10 Goals? (1)

What are Level-10 Goals? (1)

How can you rate something without a reference?

I cannot do it. And when I make a Wheel of Life, I always write my level-10 goals as a reference.

A level-10 goal is the finish line of your life. It contains your purpose and desires. And it makes you understand what you wish to achieve sooner or later.

What are Level-10 Goals? (2)

So, when you fill up a Wheel of Life, give tens only to the sections where you are on the right track to achieve your dream goal.

Here’s what my level-10 goal in Romance says, for example:

Find someone who makes you laugh, enjoys spending time with you, loves listening to you, and pushes you to become a better man. Marry her, and never stop having fun together.

So my rating for romance stays between 8 and 9 because I already found that woman, but I haven’t married her yet.

<p>I spoke about <a href="http...

I spoke about setting goals for the new year just a few weeks ago. But now that you focus only on 3-4 topics, you can narrow your choices.

Here are a few suggestions to keep in mind when you set new goals:

  • First, stay true to your values. Don’t sacrifice them for anything in the world.
  • Always work with S.M.A.R.T. goals. They are the easiest way to track your progress.
  • Accountability is fundamental. And if you don’t have anyone keeping you accountable, it will be easier to drop your goals.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
