The more things you can “check off” the more you are leading your life. Is there such a thing as having 100% of the items checked? No. Life is dynamic. It’s not meant to be “perfect” all the time. Run through this checklist and note what’s working and what’s not. If you need help boosting your “take life by the reins” powers let me know!

Take note of the items not checked. Is there something they have in common? Is there one area you’re more concerned about than another? Are their obvious missing pieces that if they were in place could make your life feel much more rewarding?
Use this checklist from time to time to take inventory of what needs boosting or attention in your life. Doing so isn’t about making your life perfect, it’s about putting you in control so you have the power to make your dreams come true.
If after going through this checklist you feel overwhelmed by all the unchecked boxes, don’t despair. Information is power and the first step to getting your life back on track.
One last tip: For some of the items in the checklist above you may want to use a scale from 1-10 (10 being the BEST). Where are you on the 1-10 scale for each item?
