One of the best ways to measure progress in your life is creating a pie chart divided up into the different areas of your life and then scoring it out of ten. I do this every month to keep track of how I am progressing and see what areas of my life need improving and which are doing well.


Draw a large circle on a piece of paper and divide it up into eight different segments. Title each segment the following:  work, finances, time, relationships, hobbies and interests, meaning, mission, health and image. Then photocopy the image twelve times for the year ahead and place the pages in your diary at the end of each month. Each month score each area out of ten. This will not only give you a tangible picture of the areas you are excelling at but also act as an early warning sign to the areas in decline that you need to actively improve.


What did you score yourself in each of the areas? Did it highlight some areas you would like to work on? Were you pleasantly surprised by the areas you are excelling in?
