Life Balance Wheel

(Adapted from Co-Active Coaching, 1998)

It can be difficult to get a handle on your life in terms of what is going well and what could use attention. A simple diagnostic tool may help.

  • On the Life Balance Wheel, look at the eight categories which make up a balanced life.
  • Then ask yourself: “In my life now, how satisfied am I in each of these areas?”
  • With the hub as 0 (very unsatisfied), and the rim of the wheel as 10 (very satisfied), rate your level of satisfaction in each area.
  • Draw a straight or curved line linking each section in order to create a new outer edge on your wheel.

As with a physical wheel, if all of your scores, or spokes on the wheel, extend to a perfect 10 (very satisfied) then the rim of your life wheel is completely circular and will roll smoothly. However, if your scores are less than 10 and uneven, you may be experiencing a bumpy ride!

inFOCUS Life Coaching offers you the opportunity to look at your Life Balance Wheel, to discuss overall satisfaction, or talk about the gap between where you are now and where you really want to be. If you are in a good place in your life, coaching will enable you be intentional in keeping the process going.
