podcasters wheel of lifePodcaster’s Wheel of Life

If you are out of balance, but you don’t why, you can take a look at the standard Wheel of Life.   Look at all of the bigger areas of your life like your health, career/work, financial, personal growth, environment, family & friends, achievement & fulfillment. Those are seven categories. Podcast is number eight.  If you feel that your Podcast is become a source of dis-satisfaction with your life, you can use the Podcaster’s Wheel of Life to help you begin a plan toward greater happiness, and decreased stress.

It’s divided up into 8 sub-categories (of the podcasting category): Editing, Purpose, Content, Planning, Speaking, Relationships, Financial, and Promotion.

examples
Editing: Your skills level with Audacity, the amount of time being spent on editing…..
Promotion: Marketing, Social Media, etc…
Financial: Podcasting expenses, Monetization, Budgeting, etc…
Relationship: Partners/Co-Hosts, Friends, Family, etc…
Purpose: Your Mission, Your Why, Legacy, etc…
Planning: Time Management, Scheduling, Coordination, etc…
Speaking: Podcast Performance, Interviewing Skills, etc…
Content: Creativity, Ideas, Relevant topics to share, etc…

Rank your level of satisfaction with each area of your podcast by drawing a line across each segment. Place a value between 1 (very dissatisfied) and 10 (fully satisfied) in each area to show how satisfied you are currently within each sub-category of your podcast.  By doing this, it will raise your awareness and allows you to plan a podcast that is more satisfying and closer to your definition of balance. It will also help you prioritize and get you started on goal-setting. Do this as often as you like, maybe once a month or two months. Doing this can highlight useful patterns and even help you to learn even more about yourself.
