Find another piece of paper and a pen to write with (or open up a document in your computer word processor).
Here is is our sixth question …
6. "What Roles Do I Play in My Life?"
Answering this question helps you to get an overview of the various aspects and responsibilities of your life. It helps provide perspective and a holistic view of your life. Roles change over time and in different seasons of our life. Think about this year. Who are you? What are you responsible for? What are you accountable for?
Merge some of your roles so that your list is no more than 6 or 7 major roles. Then think about each role. What do you want to accomplish in each? What kind of a person do you want to be? What does God expect from you? What do you want to change? What do you want to be better at and how?
Think about the balance of your life. After all, succeeding in one area of life, such as work, but failing in or neglecting another, such as family, is not success at all. What will it take for you to do well in each of your roles this year?
Look at your list of values from question five and see where your values merge with your roles.
