“Oh, this is an interesting tool. I know I should assess my business operations, but I have never thought that I could assess my life…Now that I look at my wheel of life, this is exactly how I feel. I have over-invested in my work…” I was at the Tony Robbins’s event in Rome, and it was the first time that I did my “Wheel of Life.”
I then found out that the “Wheel of Life” is a popular personal development tool, and I now use it for my course “Strategize Your Life with Simple Rules.”
The start of the new year is usually the time to review your life and set goals for the next year. This exercise can help you understand which main area you want to focus on this year.
The metaphor of the “wheel” comes from the fact that a wheel can advance well only if it is balanced.
When people do this exercise, they typically find out that some areas of life are overrated compared to others. Some managers typically assign a higher score to career and finance and a lower one to friends, family, health, or fun.
