List your top 5 from above:
2. Now, draw a circle on a page. Think of this as a pie divided into slices representing the time you spend on each activity. Draw slices on your pie showing where you spend your time during the day. (ie., work, family, spouse, health, exercise, etc.)
3. Compare your pie chart with your values. Are there any discrepancies? Does your pie chart reflect your values? If not, what needs to change to reduce those discrepancies?
