The Wheel of Life assessment is a popular tool used for self-reflection and goal setting. It provides a visual representation of various areas of your life and allows you to assess your level of satisfaction or fulfillment in each area. Here’s how you can take the Wheel of Life assessment:
- Identify the Key Areas: The Wheel of Life typically consists of several key areas, such as career, finances, health, relationships, personal development, family, spirituality, recreation, and more. You can customize these areas to reflect your specific priorities and interests.
- Draw the Wheel: Draw a large circle or use a pre-made template to create the Wheel of Life. Divide the circle into sections, each representing one of the key areas you identified in step 1. You can use lines or concentric circles to divide the wheel.
- Rate Your Satisfaction: Assign a rating to each area of your life on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being extremely dissatisfied and 10 being completely satisfied. Consider your current level of fulfillment and how satisfied you are with each area.
- Plot Your Ratings: Starting from the center of the wheel, move outward along each section and mark a point that corresponds to your rating for that area. For example, if you rated your career satisfaction as 6, mark a point on the line or circle in the career section that is six units away from the center.
- Connect the Dots: Once you have plotted points for each area, connect them to form a line or curve. This line represents the shape of your Wheel of Life. It may be smooth or uneven, indicating areas of balance or imbalance in your life.
- Reflect and Set Goals: Take a moment to reflect on the shape of your Wheel of Life. Identify areas that are significantly lower than others, indicating potential areas for improvement. Set goals or action steps to work towards improving those areas. For example, if your health rating is low, you might set a goal to exercise regularly or eat a healthier diet.
- Review and Track Progress: Regularly revisit your Wheel of Life assessment to track your progress and reassess your satisfaction levels. As you make changes and take steps towards your goals, you may notice improvements in certain areas, leading to a more balanced and fulfilling life.
Remember, the Wheel of Life is a personal assessment tool, and everyone’s wheel will look different. It’s important to be honest with yourself during the process and use it as a guide for personal growth and goal setting.
