Level 10 Life was something I had done in the past under a different name (wheel of life) so I was thrilled to see it emerging in the bullet journal community.
If you don’t know what level 10 life (or wheel of life) is, Hal Elrod in the book “The Miracle Morning” explains:
“If we’re measuring our levels of success/satisfaction in any area of our lives, we all want to be living our best lives at a ‘Level 10’ in each area. Creating your ‘Level 10 Life’ begins with creating an honest assessment of where you are.”
To complete the exercise, you need to look at each area of your life (as categorized below) and do a quick assessment of how satisfied you are in that area.

The scale is 0 being not at all satisfied, and 10 being completely satisfied.
- Family & friends
- Personal development
- Fun and recreation
- Giving and contribution
- Physical environment
- Health and fitness
This gives you a great idea of what areas you really need to focus on. Be sure to be honest with yourself with this step. Sometimes it’s hard to list something as a 2 or 3, but if that is the case you need to be honest with yourself for this to be effective.
From here, you would set 1-2 goals for each area that you’d like to focus on. For some people, they set a goal for each. I find 10 goals, on top of other goals I am focused on, to be unattainable. Instead, pick the two or three areas you feel need the most attention and would have the greatest impact on your overall happiness if you were to improve them, and focus your energy on those.
Now, in the traditional wheel you shade in your answers. As always with this creative community, people started putting their own flare on it and taking it out of the typical “wheel” shape.
I’ve scoured the blogosphere and social media and have found 10 Level 10 Life Variations for your viewing pleasure.
Do you do Level 10 Life in your journal? Do you do one of the above variations or something else?
