Wheel of Life Exercise

The Wheel of Life** is a quick assessment of your level of satisfaction with the various areas of your life. Each section of the circle represents one area of your life


  • With the center of the wheel as 0 and the outer edge as an ideal 10, rank your level of satisfaction with each life area.
  • Draw a straight or curved line by connecting the dots to create a new outer edge (see example below).
  • A Wheel of Life, once completed, may look similar to the example on the left.
    The new perimeter of the circle represents your Wheel of Life. How bumpy would the ride be if this were a real wheel?
  • Look at areas where you want to improve your level of satisfaction and begin to think about what you might do about it.
  • For each section, write down one thing you can do to increase your level of satisfaction in this area.
  • Commit to taking action now.

Life coaching is about commitment, movement and flow. Are you ready to move forward but aren’t sure how? This is where working with a Life Coach can make a difference.
