The Wheel of Life is a way to do some self-examination.
It's hard for me to place a value on some of the areas but it is a valuable exercise. Doing this exercise could help with any resolutions you may want to tackle.
A few ongoing resolutions of mine are:
1. spending less time on the internet.
2. be a better housekeeper.
3. spend more time outside.
4. be more productive.
5. reach my goal weight and maintain.
6. write an ebook of daily readings.
These are very poorly written goals because they don't meet the requirements of goal setting.
Goals should be:
under my control
have a time limit
They are all realistic and under my control.
However, there is no time limit nor are they measureable.
1. I will only spend one hour per day on the internet.
2. I will clean house on Wednesdays each week. (like the sixth Wednesday of each month - just kidding :-)
3. I will spend 1/2 hour each day outside weather permitting.
4. I will "make something right" when I go into a room. I will quit looking at things that need to be done and ignore them. I will do things like "take that empty flower pot to the greenhouse" or "get that cobweb I have been noticing for days".
5. I will reach my goal weight of 165 pounds at a rate of 5 lb. per month - I will figure this out when I weigh myself on January 1.
6. I will work on my ebook for 1/2 hour each day.
The only one that I'll probably follow through on is Number 5. I am planning on breaking the others pretty quickly but it sounds good.
How about you?
