Episode 290: The Lesson In The 3 Buckets

lessons learned series Dec 30, 2022

I saw a great self-evaluation exercise shared by Jonathan Fields, founder of the Good Life Project, that I share in this episode. I thought it was a great lesson to end 2022 with!

The exercise involves evaluating yourself in the following 3 separate categories, or "buckets" as Jonathan refers to them:

  • Vitality
  • Connection
  • Contribution

Listen in as I explain what to look for when evaluating how full each bucket is for you. Make sure to grab a notepad and take notes so you capture all of the traits of each bucket in your evaluation process.

Once you finish listening to the episode, rank each bucket on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the least satisfied and 10 being the most satisfied and 5 being neutral. 

After you're done, look at your rankings and think about what improvements you want make in these areas in 2023. I recommend you focus on increasing your satisfaction for the buckets where your satisfaction is lowest.

Then in a few weeks, re-evaluate to see if your rankings have improved, and keep evaluating every so often to ensure your vitality, connection, and contribution buckets are as full in your life as possible.
