Happy New Year!

It’s tempting to want to make changes at the beginning of a new year. But we also know that New Year’s resolutions aren’t very effective.  Some studies show a failure rate of almost 30% by the end of the first week of January.

Wanting to change something in your life is healthy; it’s a sign that you want to grow and learn.  Making resolutions doesn’t work because resolutions are often not tied to our values. Without any context, resolutions quickly turn into tasks we do begrudgingly because we think we have to.  

There’s a much better way to approach making changes in your life. (My recent posts on identifying your values and how to create goals will give you some context for making those changes.)

The best place to start is to assess where you are right now.

I’ve created the Life Leadership Assessment to help you discover how you’re doing in 10 key areas of your life:  Parent, Partner, Physical, Passion, Profession, Pay, Personal Development, Psychological and Purpose.

Download and print the free Assessment booklet here.  It includes a self-score feature and helps you determine where things are going well and where you may have some room for improvement. The booklet will also give you a way to visualize your results so you can create the balance you want in your life.

Take some time to download the booklet right now. In just a few minutes, you can get a better understanding of how you can more effectively create a life you love leading.

Love and wellness,


PS — If you have any questions about the Assessment and how you can use it, please let me know.  You’ll find my contact information in the booklet (or you can send me an email). And if you know someone who might find the Assessment helpful, please share it!
