Take This Personal Life Assessment

Achieve More, And Gain More Life Satisfaction



Bill Cole, MS, MA
Founder and CEO
William B. Cole Consultants
Silicon Valley, California



You have only one life. How is yours going? Are you achieving all you want? Are you getting where you want to go fast enough? Is the quality of your life what you want it to be? How much satisfaction is your life bringing you? How are your relationships? Are you satisfied with your income and overall financial picture? What things are missing in your life? If you could make significant changes, how quickly would they bring you closer to reaching your full potential?

This personal assessment tool will quickly provide you with the big picture in your life. It will help you begin to identify your strong points, reveal your needed development areas and provide a focus for any coaching session. It will also serve as a launching point for understanding how the personal coaching process will unfold.

If you've hired me as your personal coach, please fax or email this back to me before our first coaching session at: Bill@MentalGameCoach.com or 408-440-2339. You may also use this form for your own self-analysis, to begin working on your personal skills.

Here's how to complete the following 69-item Personal Skills Assessment.

1. Review this list of personal topics and mark the number ONE in the space provided next to the items that seem MOST important and URGENT to you to be WORKED ON FIRST.

2. Mark the number TWO next to those that seem NEXT most important to work on.

3. Mark the number THREE next to those that seem to be in the THIRD TIER of importance.

4. Make NO MARK next to those which DON'T seem to be important now, or at all, or which DO NOT APPLY to you.

5. Place a QUESTION MARK next to those with which you are unfamiliar and would like clarification.

6. If there are any areas or concerns you would like to address NOT LISTED here, please write them in at the end of this form.

7. Please keep a copy for your own files. I have found that repeated review of this assessment is quite helpful in allowing you to continue to see new personal vistas.

Here we go with the assessment.
