If you read my previous post on the pages I want to add into my Bullet Journal, you will know that the Level 10 life is something I wanted to include (If you haven’t read it, I will put the link to it here)
What is the Level 10 life?
I believe it was created by Hal Elrod in a book called The Miracle Morning, but who knows who really invented it?! Basically, it is a way for you to improve your life, in 10 different areas.
You choose 10 areas that you want to work on whether it be Family, Relationships, Financial, Personal or even Business related. You then honestly rate them, out of ten, of how satisfied they make you currently. The remaining number then gives you the number of goals you can set yourself for each category. Once you have completed a goal it then ‘ups your level’. The aim is to get all categories to level 10, by the end of the year.
As much as I love this, I feel there is always going to be something to improve, no matter what area of your life you are looking at. But, I suppose this is just a short-term thing. You can complete the levels by the end of the year, then create a new one in order to improve those areas of your life even more. Or, have different areas of your life to improve.
The 10 areas Hal Elrod suggests
- Personal Growth
- Physical Environment
Of course, you don’t have to use these! I have taken some inspiration from them and chose 10 of my own categories to improve on.
My 10 areas
- Mental Health
- Family Relationship
- Physical Environment
- Physical Health
I have decided to do mine in more of a bar chart, rather than the traditional wheel. I just feel like, personally, it works better for me as I am more likely to fill in the bar chart than a wheel. Plus, drawing circles is not one of my favourite things to do – They never look neat!
On the left page, I have my bar chart, with each category colour coded.
The right side of the spread has my goals for each category, wrote down. I have chosen smaller, more specific goals, in order to help me complete them. I am one of those people that like to set massive goals, that are never achievable. So, for this, I have chosen smaller, more achievable goals for me.
I managed to get these goals by sitting down and thinking ‘In an ideal world, how would these things look too me?’ If I have chosen the category as an area of my life I want to improve, then it clearly isn’t the ‘ideal world’ situation, is it? So, there should always be at least one goal for each category.
Have you created a Level 10 Life page? What were the categories you used, or plan on using if you haven’t yet got one!?
