Goals and Aspirations

The Pyramid of Mastery defines the 7 Areas of Focus for creating an Extraordinary Life.

As achievers we know that whatever we focus on, we will find a way to achieve. The challenge so many of us face, though, is in finding balance. Even the greatest achievers acknowledge a gap between where they are and where they really want to be.

Perhaps our businesses or careers are strong, but our intimate relationships are lacking. Or maybe our relationships are flourishing, but our personal finances, physical vitality, or even our connection with our children is suffering. We all have areas of our lives that demand more focus.

What does an Extraordinary life mean to you?

The Wheel of Life
Imagine your life has seven sections that you deem critically important and worthy of constant improvement. Think of them as spokes in a wheel. Where do you gauge your life right now in each area? For each area, grade your life from 5 to 100 on where you are today vs. where you really want to be.

The first step in closing the gap, however, is to figure out where you already are. A map can only guide you to where you want to go if you know your precise starting point.
