A reader of mine shared with us that he was having a drink with a friend.

His friend asked whether they are happy with how their life turned out currently. My reader said that we should feel happy if a few areas of our life turn out well.

So he proceed to draw up a series of circles and score 5 important areas of his life. These are family, career, friends, finance and health.

A score of 1 for him is excellent and 5 is very unimpressive.

So here is an example:

I give him props for drawing decent circles without a ruler.

Our success in many areas of life and work is determine by not just one thing but a few different things.

What my reader did was to come up with what Excel will call a radar chart. It allows us to review things through multiple variables that determines something.
