This is a deceptively simple exercise that has surprising power to shift your mindset. It’s a quick way to get an overview of what’s important for you in your life, and thus is great to do in January when you’re anyway focused on your priorities for the upcoming year (aren’t you?).
The artist date is a wonderful exercise with a number of significant benefits. It enables you to practice making a commitment to yourself, and it demands that you create space and time for yourself. It also requires you to find a way to have more fun in your life. Each of these benefits will help you in multiple ways on the self-development path.
I am including some of my favourite self-development exercises on this site, and you are welcome to experiment with them. These are resources I use in coaching, and which have also proved to be valuable for me in my personal process. The first I’d like to share is the life balance wheel, or the wheel of life as it’s also called.
