What's your "Well Being" score?

We all fall into the trap of trying to improve our lives by buying into programs that promise to help us make money, lose weight, or strengthen our relationships.

While it might be easier to treat these critical areas in our lives as if they are independent, they're not. I recently came across a book written by the same author who wrote "StrengthsFinder 2.0" (one of my favorite books), his newest book is called "Well Being- The Five Essential Elements".

This book provides a holistic view of what contributes to your wellbeing over a lifetime. Those areas are:
  • Career Wellbeing
  • Social Wellbeing
  • Financial Wellbeing
  • Physical Wellbeing
  • Community Wellbeing
As a complement to the book, you'll have the opportunity to use Gallup's online Wellbeing Assessment tool to track and improve your wellbeing. By the time you finish this book, you'll have a better understanding of what makes life worthwhile. It's a great book and definitely worth your time!
