a self check printable worksheet

May 5, 2014

Last week I was driving and my head just started spinning with all the things in my life I needed to keep straight. There are things I need to do to keep our lives running day to day, areas that I want to focus on for my own personal growth, projects to tackle, relationships to improve. All of a sudden I had the overwhelming need to separate it all out and have a space to do a little bit of journaling about where I am in each area of life along with a place to note any actions I need to take.

I wanted something physical that I could hand write on and tape up where I’ll see it. This is what I came up with:

Filling this out was incredibly therapeutic. It allowed me to gauge where I’m at in a bunch of different areas and write out the next step that needs to be taken to improve in them. I have it posted in my bathroom so I can ruminate on it while I get ready in the morning and wind down at night. Then I plan to go through the action steps and schedule them into my to-do list. I think I’m going to take the time to fill one of these out every month or so!

Have you ever done anything like this? Do you compartmentalize your life or is it all jumbled together? For me things tend to flow one into the other and I’m always juggling a ton of different lines of thought, but sometimes separating them out helps. If you’re interested, I wanted to make this chart available to you to customize. You can access it as a Google doc here, or click on the picture below, then just save a copy and edit the categories however you like!

    From Sarah @ beauty school dropout:

    Wow, there are a lot of categories on there… just seeing the list stresses me out a little bit. But I bet if I sat down with it and thought about it a while, it would actually calm my mind. There are parts of my life I feel like are always out of control (my messy house being chief among them) and I really need to come up with an action plan to deal with it.

    From kapachino:

    I know, that’s why I was feeling so jumbled! I wanted to get it all down and I tried to think of everything, hence all the categories. I think it’s helping though!

    From Nora:

    Such a good idea! Lately all of my lists are in my head and cluttering things up. I need to change that one of these days especially since I have an awesome planner and tons of journals that I can use….
