Session 3: Reboot Your 7 Life Segments

RECAP: The things you do on a day-to-day basis as a work-at-home father can be divided into 7 Life Segments, such as:

      • Family & Relationships
      • Career & Work
      • Money & Finances
      • Health & Wellbeing
      • Learning & Education
      • Fun & Adventure
      • Spirituality & Ethics
The Value Circle

These 7 Life Segments are the main areas in which you can focus and set goals to achieve throughout each phase of your life.

However, they can also be the main areas that drain your energy levels.

Your Weekly Task for Session 3: Energy-Management

 

Rate your energy levels in each of your 7 Life Segments on a scale of 0-10 (where 0 is the lowest and 10 is the highest).

For instance, you might rate your energy levels in Family & Relationships as 9 or 10, but Money & Finances as 3.

Do this for all 7 segments.

Next, rank each key life area or segment in order of lowest energy levels from 1-7 (i.e. lowest energy segment = 1, highest energy segment = 7) and give your reasons for each energy ranking:

Life Segment
Reasons for Energy Rank
Example: 1. Family & Relationships
There are people in my life who continually drain my energy.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

Now write down your Action Plan to stop or reduce your energy drains over the next week, starting today:

Life Segment Energy Drain
Action Plan
Day & Date
Example: 1. Family & Relationships
To minimise contact with people who drain my energy
Monday to Friday
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

Now that you have an Action Plan to ‘stop the energy bleeding’, you might like to consider an Energy Plan to boost your energy levels.

Think of the activities in each Life Segment that give you energy and write down your Energy Plan to boost your energy levels over the next week, starting today:

Life Segment Energy Boost
Energy Plan
Day & Date
Example: 1. Family & Relationships
Spend more time with positive people who support me.
Monday to Friday
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

These energy ‘goals’ are what you will be working toward over the next few weeks, months, and even years. So the important point is not to rush this task but to get it right, and then put it into action.

Here are some resources and further reading to help you with this task.
