Life is comprised of a lot of categories! It can be overwhelming. Not sure where to begin? Take this personal self-evaluation to help hone in on your priorities. Once complete, you should have a better idea of which categories need more attention. The entire test takes about ten minutes. Remember: This test is meant only to be used as a private tool to inform and empower your decision - the more honest you are, the more accurate the results.
Clear all distractions. Find somewhere comfortable and quiet where you will not be disturbed. Sit down with a pen and paper. Take a few deep, cleansing breaths.
Read through all of the following statements in their entirety. Then, following the point system below, revisit each statement and rank each based on how true it is for you.
1-5 Completely Untrue - "I am not serving myself well in this area."
6-8 Moderately True - "I am on a journey towards self-improvement."
9-10 Completely True - "I push myself in this area and am proud to say this is true."
Once you have ranked all of the statements according to how true they are within the context of your current life, tally the total in each category.
“I am checking items off my bucket list.” - 5
“I prioritize new experiences, travel and adventure because I understand they are a part of my ideal lifestyle.” - 4
“I challenge myself to try new things and create memories.” - 6
Category Score = 15
The categories that score the lowest need the most attention, while the high scoring categories are areas of your life that you can celebrate.
With this information, you now have a blueprint of your current life. Compare this with your ideal life and decide which areas you would like to work on first. Remember: Improving and putting effort into any one of these 12 categories will result in general improvements in others. Take pride in your achievements and celebrate as your experience success, but don't forget to revisit this self-evaluation occasionally to review your priorities and check-in with your progress!
