The time comes in every life where we have to take an accounting, a reckoning of the things we’ve done, the progress we’ve made, and the path we’re on. During that evaluation we may find that we don’t like where we are, and want to make changes to move forward with our goals. Maybe you’ll find that you’re making the progress you wanted to, and everything is moving along smoothly, most likely it’ll wind up somewhere in between. Whatever the case, Evaluate your Life day is a great opportunity to figure out where you are on your path.

Once you’ve got everything nicely itemized down, you can start cross-referencing how they relate to each other, and see where you’ve arrived on the path of your life.
