What is it?
A commonly used coaching or self-assessment tool, illustrating the interplay and connectivity of the domains of our lives, typically: family, friends, work, finances, health, relationships.
With the objective of highlighting imbalances across the domains – those that need more attention or dominate or are undervalued.

2. Create your own Wheel of Life, select the domains to be focused on. Label each segment (there are lots of Wheels of Life online for inspiration or just a template).
3. Join the dots: score each segment out of 10 for satisfaction, fulfilment, happiness or time dedicated – or another measure that resonates.
4. What do the results tell you? Do you have balance across all segments? Or is one sector dominating and by implication others suffering?
Are you happy with the result? Do you need to make changes? (You might not).
