The life balance wheel gives a snapshot of our life right now, allowing us to assess our level of satisfaction in different areas of life and serving as a foundation for our strategic plan.

Instructions: With the center of the wheel as 0 and the outer edge as 10, rank your level of satisfaction with each life area by drawing a curved line to create a new outer edge. What actions can you take to increase your scores?

Many coaches use the life balance wheel in the first coaching session to help clients review their whole life. Periodic review of the balance wheel can help people stay in alignment with what’s most important and move into action. The balance wheel serves as a visual reminder of what life could be—imagine having straight 10s in each area of life. By looking at one area of life at a time, and exploring both short-term and long-term actions, it becomes easier to change one part of our life, one step at a time.
