Interpreting Your Score


 

Using More of My Gifts & Talents

Since our world is skills and action oriented, this is a good place to start investing your time. The first thing to do is understand why you are not using more of your gifts and talents now.

You may have a low percentage if you have focused more on acquiring the standard abilities typically taught in schools, recognized by parents and focused on at work -- instead of developing your gifts and talents.

 

 

Doing More of What I Love

To start spending more of your day doing what you love, you want to make sure that you know exactly what that is.


 

Working More On Compelling Issues

This is one area that many of us overlook when we evaluate a job offer. We focus on the salary, title and benefits -- and end up overlooking what makes each hour spent on the job meaningful.


 

Doing More of My Life Calling

It can be challenging to translate a vision of how you want to impact or improve the world into your everyday life. Often we end up dreaming on the weekends and spending our weekdays focused on paying the bills.


 

Living More of The Life I Love

Flour, sugar, eggs and water must be combined in the right proportions to make a cake. To make a life you love, you need to properly combine nine essential ingredients into a recipe for living the life you dream of, which we envision as ...

You need to have all the ingredients and combine them together in the right way. For example, if you are using your gifts and talents you will have a high 'using my gifts and talents' percentage. But if you are not using them on the issues you truly care about, you will have a low overall percentage.

So take a moment and compare your individual scores to your overall ones, and see it you can identify what is causing the low score. Is it one low area, a missing ingredient, or how you are combining them together?

If you really want to start living the life you dream of, we recommend that you start first by doing what you love for a living. Working is how you spend most of your day. And excelling there should pay you handsomely enough to be able to afford the resources and time to do more of what you love.
