Personal Assessment

Personal Assessment

Trajectory is extremely important to pilots. If a plane is off course by only 1 degree it affects their landing by around 92 feet. That may not sound like a lot, but it’s roughly 1 mile difference for every 60 miles they fly. Imagine a trip from New York to LA and your trajectory is off by 1 degree. Your plane would be landing about 40 miles off the coast and into the Atlantic! I’d say that was a disastrous miscalculation!

Life can be the same way. We have an idea of where we want to end up in certain areas of our lives but small and seemingly insignificant decisions get us off course.  Before we know it, areas of our life seem to have gotten out of our control and we end up in a place we never intended.

That’s why it’s so important to stop every now and then and purposefully look at where we are.  Are we on the path to our destination, or did we derail somewhere and get off track?  If we assess ourselves often enough, we can easily steer ourselves back to where we need to be. If we ignore it, we can find ourselves so far from the path that we can’t even remember where we were going to begin with.

How often do you think about where you are going?  Maybe you have a clear goal for your professional life, but you wander aimlessly in your relationships.  Maybe financially you have a plan, but spiritually you wander in the desert.  Today, we are going to take long honest look at where you are in 6 main life areas.

Take some time to answer these questions and then download our free personal assessment worksheet.

  1. Before you can know your trajectory, you need to know your path!  Have you ever thought about where you want to be in these 6 areas: personal growth, professional growth, faith, finances, relationships, health and wellness?
  2. When was the last time you stopped to intentionally evaluate how you were doing in these areas?
  3. Moving forward, how will being aware of where you are going and where you are help you to make better decisions?
