We’ve established there’s something you must do. There’s a challenge in your life. It needs solving. You probably know what it is. That’s why you bought this book. Write it down here:

This is the major problem I have to fix

Not sure what the problem is?

Let’s do the wheel of life. How happy are you with the main elements of your life? Think about these elements: money, career, health, power, friends, family, partner, community, health and recreation.

In the wheel below, shade in your satisfaction with each element, with 10 for total satisfaction, and 1 for complete dissatisfaction.

Here’s one that somebody else completed. Can you see what their concern was?

Put a score out of ten for each. Then ignore any that you scored six or more. Life isn’t perfect. At least one aspect of your life will stand out as being bad. It’s the One Big Change you need to make. It’s the one you need to fix. 

If you’re not into charts, write down the numbers on this table instead.
