Spheres of Life

All in life is interconnected. Also the human being is a system of “inner worlds” – to speak with the German philosopher and cultural theorist Peter Sloterdijk – in himself. Changes in one world will effect the others. Consequently, we should consider these changes and possible effects. Just to give you an example: Maybe your partner or colleague doesn’t like your intended changes, because they love or appreciate you the way you are. And they might act accordingly. This might hold you back. Or by the opposite: once you transform yourself, suddenly your partnership is much happier. 

Furthermore, as a starting point you might rate your satisfaction for each of the spheres and thereby have a visual overview, where to work on.
