Content Covered: Wheel of Life
Okay this is officaly amazing…. Frieda Edgette, my professor for the Stanford Class set up 1:1 cocaching sessions with her students (what a great perk!) and to prepare for our session she sent us a questionaire with the following questions:
- What was a time you felt totally in the zone and on your “A Game”? You were making things happen with just enough challenge, at ease and having fun.
- Who is someone you find inspiring? What about them makes them inspiring?
- What are three of your greatest strengths?
- What are two things that hold you back? Please explain.
- What fulfills you? List three and explain how so.
And then we had to define two goals, the first was a mindset goal and the second a performance goal.
For each goal we also needed to answer the following:
- Describe the goal:
- This is important because …
- By accomplishing this goal I will be….
For my mindset goal I picked balancing the differnet needs and demands from the various domains / roles / responsiblities in my life (career, family, health, Xpanse). And for my performance goal I picked defining Xpanse’s intent, mission and vision.
Then came the 1:1 with Frieda, and as we were talking about my goals she mentioned if I had heard of this tool called the Wheel of Life.
Essentialy the wheel of life is a visual represntation on a scale of 1-10 of how ‘balanced’ you feel about each of the domains in your life.
Domains vary from person to person, I identified 7 for now; and then I asked myself: on a scale of 1-10 how am I doing in this domain? The results are below.
Next, I will be looking at the domains that today, rank the lowest and asking myself: what action can I take to move that domain up one point (so make a 4 into a 5, etc.).
The intent is that by visualizing my landscape of responsibilities, and where I currently feel they are, I can start making choices to help ‘balance’ out some of the areas that clearly have not been getting my love and attention recently.
I believe it to be true, we don’t know what we don’t know – but we can always nudge this paradox by asking a few well intended questions. Thus this is mine to you: what can you do differently today to take you one step closer to what you desire?
It is really good to see how you can actually measure things like emotions relationships work health family using some of these techniques… one can set themselves up for success by practicing these… but at the same time don’t lose touch with being yourself… life can be balanced and measured with pure emotions and actions, there will always be an area that is being neglected… after all we are humans and we have failings… as long as you are happy and feel you have given your 100% to your life/goals: balance has been achieved!! Do not beat yourself up if u are not a perfect 10 on 10 in every field!!!
Our Life’s vertical alignment God Family Work Others
All the above fall into one of these… and will constantly shift for priority, as long as we know these alignment hold true we find ourselves grounded!!!

You are almost reaching mid way to your commitment on this news letter… which will call for a celebration!!! ❤️🤗
