In this episode we’re talking about Martin Short’s 9 categories of self-evaluation. This is based on an interview that he did where he shared that every year he takes stock of where he is in his life in the following areas: Self, Immediate Family, Original Family, Friends, Money, Career, Creativity, Discipline and Lifestyle.

By taking a moment to look at these categories or areas of your life, it quickly becomes apparent that there is so much more to our existence than our career.

Short credits this outlook as helping him to prioritize what’s truly important in life but also uses them as a means to bring balance and be in a place of gratitude.
