Enjoying Your Life
|Area of Your Life||Enjoyment||Binkles||Primacy I||Primacy II|
|Religious or Spiritual|
|Your personal passion_____|
|Fun or recreation|
To assess the amount of enjoyment each provides, rate each life area three different ways:
- Satisfaction How much satisfaction and enjoyment does it give you?
Rate each between 0 (none) and 10 (very high)
- Binkles How much binkle energy do you derive from it?
(1) Lots (2) So-so (3) None
- Primacy I – Priorities Which of them is most important to you? Based on your priorities, put them in order from most important (1) to least important (10 or 13 if you added more).
- Primacy II – Reality Check Which is most important to you? Based on the amount of time and energy is you actually spend on it (in a typical week),
put them in order based on most time and energy (1) to least time and energy(10 or 13, if you added more)
Now compare Primacy I and Primacy II. Compare what you say is important with what you treat as important. How do you feel about that?
Your Self-survey Results:
- There are no right or wrong answers. This is an exercise in looking below the surface of your behavior.
- How well do you know yourself?
- What you list is just a scorecard—a point of reference. How does knowing this add to your store of self-knowledge? Your ability to experience more joy?
- Do you get a sense of what’s important or working for you? What isn’t? Any surprises? Any tender spots?
- Now, what do you intend to do about it?
Put it to use
This is not mere information, something to total up, then forget it. Treat this simple survey as a monitoring device. Taking time to do this exercise from time to time will show where in your life things are changing or maturing. That’s worth knowing.
But even better, on some not-quite-conscious level, you’ve been taking note of such influences as they come up. It’s amazing how many options you gain.
