    Do you rate each area out of 10 or order the areas 1-10?

    1. I rate each category on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest! So if I’m feeling less than satisfied, I might mark it as a 4 or a 5, but if I’m feeling very happy with a category, I will rank it closer to 9 or 10. I hope that helps, Suzi!

  2. So I am a little confused about the actual use of it. Does it stay the same and you just use it to reflect and remind you what you need to work on and then you change it accordingly when you make a new one? Or do you add to it as you go? Which could be complicated if it fluctuates..

    1. That’s a great question, Carlee! I tend to do a new Level 10 Life every 6 months or so as a way to check in on my goals. It allows me to assess what areas of my life I’ve successfully improved and where to focus my attention next. So it stays static, I just make new ones when I need to! I hope that clears it up 🙂

  3. I have been collecting ideas and thinking about starting a journal .Your method reminds me of one of those gardens you walk in a sand circle in
    You use pens I have never heard of either but are probably mainstream for diehards.Great info!

  4. Hi
    I always wondered about including the level 10 life in my bujo. However, I suffer with a mental illness which isolates me from friends and family and means that my friends and family section and my career section would always be pathetically low which rather than motivating me to change it would demoralise me. I wondered if anyone else had this issue? If so, is there any way around this? Has anyone tried just eliminating sections which will make them feel under pressure and a failure because they will never get where they want to be?

    1. That’s a great point, Jenn! Yes, you absolutely can eliminate or swap sections for your Level 10 Life. For example, I know some people nix “spirituality” because they don’t feel that section is relevant to them. So maybe add something like “hobbies”, “organization”, “self-care”, or something else in your life that you want to focus on. Or just take it down to 9 sections! In the end, the Level 10 Life is meant to encourage and inspire. If it’s having the opposite effect, don’t feel bad about tweaking it to fit your needs. Good luck!

    2. Hi Jenn,

      Sorry about your health problems. You could leave them out if you feel that is the best thing for you there are no rules or substitute them with something you feel is more relevant to you and in your control. I am also frequently disappointed with my friends and family areas to and just cause they aren’t there they don’t go away sometimes it is about accepting you are doing the best that you can right now learning not to put that pressure on yourself acknowledging that it is hard.

    3. Jenn,

      I feel the exact same way every time I come across this collection idea. I really love the idea of it, but due to chronic health issues including chronic pain that limits my ability to live my life fully, I also feel it would demoralize me when it comes to the friends/family, career. But at the same time I do not see my life improving in those areas with or without the reminder of those issues through this collection. One of the reasons I have started using a bullet journal is because one of my issues with my chronic health is difficulty with memory and concentration. In that it has been very useful. I find habit trackers and journaling collections to be very useful for me.
