Session 4: Itemise Your 7 Life Segments

RECAP: The things you do on a day-to-day basis as a work-at-home parent 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 steal or waste your time.

Your Weekly Task for Session 4: Time-Management


Rate your time-management 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 time-management 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 biggest time wastage from 1-7 (i.e. biggest time wastage segment = 1, lowest time wastage segment = 7) and give your reasons for each ranking:

Life Segment
Reasons for Time Wastage
Example: 1. Fun & Adventure
I tend to put having fun ahead of doing chores that need doing.

Now write down your Action Plan to stop or eliminate your time stealers or wasters over the next week, starting today:

Life Segment Time Waster
Action Plan
Day & Date
Example: 1. Fun & Adventure
To do chores first before relaxing and having fun.
Monday to Friday

Now that you have an Action Plan to ‘stop the time-wasting’, you might like to consider The $25,000 Idea to free up more time and create the future you want. All you need to do is:

      1. Write down the most important thing you need to do in each Life Segment.
      2. Number those items 1-7 in order of importance to you.
      3. Start today on item No. 1, and don’t look at item No. 2 or any other item until you have completed item No. 1.
      4. Then start item No. 2 and do not start item No. 3 until you have completed item No. 2.
      5. Complete the 7 items in the same manner.

These time-management ‘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.
