I have written about this pdf file, which you can download, called the Reserve Index, on my business blog a few times, and thought I should introduce it here because there are different readers for this blog than that one.
It’s a self evaluation form to help you determine just how comfortable you are with your life and ideas, based on the questions, of how you can improve your life even further for your peace of mine. Some people seem to be scared of self evaluation; y’all know I’m not one of those people.
The first time I took this test, I only scored 8 out of 100+ possible points, which was disheartening. A year later, I was able to mark off 27, which was a significant improvement. Then, a couple of months ago I took it again and only managed 18 positive points. The scary thing is that I passed it out to a number of my friends, and only one of them, when I originally took it, scored higher than I did. That’s pretty sad.
The test consists of six regular categories and one bonus categories, basically giving you the opportunity to write in something that you feel improves you life that hasn’t already been addressed. Not all of the questions will apply to you as far as your happiness goes. For instance, there was a point about multiple vacations out of town, and that’s something that would never interest me, so I’ll never get that point.
I’d like you to take the Reserve Index test, evaluate yourself, and, if you feel comfortable enough, come back here and tell us how you did and how you felt about where you place. Come on, you have nothing to hide!
