The Life Audit Wheel Coaching Tool

Im giving you the Life Audit Wheel as a free life coaching tool to help you see at a glance where your investments are out of balance with your life's priorities. I will guide you through the process step by step. You do the work. The idea is to get a birds eye view that will show you where to shift your focus to what matters most. Where your attention goes, energy flows, and results show.

What you need to complete the life audit

Before you get started, grab your self

  • a large blank piece of paper (A4 size)
  • a pen or coloured pens
  • a large circular object that fills the page
  • a ruler / straight edge
  • around 45 minutes

If you like, you can of course invest in a beautiful leather bound journal, somewhere to hold your thoughts and ideas that will inspire you to come back time after time. 

Maybe invest in a variety of coloured pens or inks to enhance the visual impact of your note taking. I have been a fan of mind mapping for many years and find that paper just far outperforms any digital version.

Free Life Audit

The free life audit wheel isn't a complete intervention in itself, but it will create a powerful visual representation, an overview, of where your focus is, and where it needs to be.

e.g. You may feel your work is awesome but your relationship, is suffering. That means your wheel is out of balance and you maybe want to put some attention on that area of life. 

This is a great place to start your life coaching journey of transformation. Completing the life audit wheel won't give you answers, but it will show you where you need to look. 

Life Coaching will guide you to those light-bulb, or 'Aha!" moments of transformational insights.

First things first

Create a wheel on the page with eight spokes. Use the circular item to draw around and make the circle as big as the page will allow. Next use the straight edge to divide the circle in two equal halves, and then carry on dividing until you have six sections. 

Your life audit wheel should resemble a pizza with six slices if you get the picture.

The next step is to determine the label for each section of the wheel. You can use my suggestions here which are the most common areas for the life audit:

Career, Wealth, Environment, Health, Relationship, Self Esteem

Notice that the labels are quite generic. This leaves the details out and keeps it at a higher degree of abstraction.

What do I mean by degree of abstraction?

When I have a coaching conversation with a client I will utilise questions to determine a higher level of specificity, or direct the client to think in a higher degree of abstraction. So for example the question "How do you feel about your health?" is quite abstract compared to the more specific question "How much weight do you want to lose?" 

The idea in the life audit wheel is to start with a high degree of abstraction and hone in on the specificity later. This is a tactic aimed at saving time and energy and investment by highlighting the area's that require more attention than others. So for example if you didn't want to lose weight, the question above could be a wasted question.

Visualise How You Want Your Life To Be

Now you are in creative thinking mode. Imagine if each section of the wheel was ideal. Exactly as you wanted it to be. It simply could not be any better than that. Thats a reference point for you. If each section was full from the hub to the edge it would be ten out of ten. 

My clients are often surprised where their personal insights come from. Your's may just come through this life audit session alone. Register for a free coaching consultation to see how it will work for you.

Increase the level of specificity

Now you can go through each of the question boxes below for each section of the life audit wheel. Make sure to not the overall score for each section. Each statement that is true counts as one point. 

The key is to go with the first though that comes to mind. Remembering not to go to deep into the statement. Don't try to rationalise it. Just go with your gut. Is the statement true or false?

Thats the hard part done

Now that you have your input data for your life audit wheel draw a line in each section on your drawing which represents the total score. A score of one is one step from the centre. A score of ten would be the outside edge of the wheel.

What do you end up with? It should look like an incomplete circle now with sections at different levels. e.g. You may feel your work is awesome but your relationship, is suffering. That means your wheel is out of balance and you maybe want to put some attention on that area of life. 

  • How do the actual levels compare with your visualised ten out of ten ideal?
  • What area's of your life do you think require more attention than others? 
  • Are there any actions you need to take right away based on this exercise?

"Knowing is not enough, you must apply. Willing is not enough, you must do" - Bruce Lee

What will you become?

Life coaching is all about change, but more specifically, positive and lasting change you want. You only have to decide what area of your life needs a breakthrough, and then commit to make your dream come true for you to really live the quality life you desire. 

The life audit wheel is a visual coaching tool that will help create a visual overview of how you think you are performing in the most important area's in your life. Sometimes, all it takes a little torch and the way becomes clear. 

Remember, it is not meant to be a complete intervention in and of itself. It's what you do next that can make all the difference. Are you ready to go deeper?
