Goal-Gap Assessment

This Goal-Gap assessment is a simple measurement tool designed to gauge your progress towards goals in different areas of your life. When any area of your life is lacking or draining your energy, it weakens your ability to move towards your goals. By strengthening the basics of your life, you give yourself the energy and muscle to move forward and close the gaps in all areas.
 
INSTRUCTIONS: There are 50 statements listed for a total of 100 points. Review each statement and answer whether it is “True” or “False” for you right now – not that you wish were true. Respond as honestly as possible.
 
This assessment is NOT about getting a “high score.” Instead, it’s about breaking free from what’s holding you back. The only way to effectively close the gap to help you reach your goals is by embracing the truth. Please do not be concerned with what you may view as a “low score.” This assessment is an opportunity to gauge where you are, pinpoint the gaps that exist between where you are and where you want to be, and measure your progress in the weeks ahead. You are encouraged to take this assessment again.  For example, you may only be able to check 15 of the statements today, but through adjustments in your thoughts, actions, and energy, you may find that in just a few weeks, you can check 35 or more statements.
