How To Get The Most From This LifeMap

Why Was This Map Created?

Asking yourself a great question each morning can be a simple but effective exercise for focusing your thoughts and feelings in a way that produces positive results in your life.

How To Use The Various Elements Of The Map

  • The Questions (directly below the name of each day) - Depending on the current day of the week, ask yourself the question shown with as much thought, feeling, honesty, and creativity, as you can. Practice doing this in the morning, before getting into the busy part of your day.
  • The Thinking Guides (in the gray box below each question) - Below each main question is a gray box containing 'thinking guides' to help you gain the most value and benefit from answering it.
  • The Tips/Suggestions (along the left side of the map) - Do more than give each question a passing glance... extract value from it by following these suggestions.
