Directions: Begin by marking a circle with an x in it ⊗ where you are now (age) and degree of satisfaction with your life (0 to 10). Using that
as a starting point, first think backward and identify the most important high and low points of your life up to the present. Locate the age and
satisfaction of each of these points on the chart, mark it with an x, and briefly label it (e.g., started high school, [age, 14; satisfaction, 9], parents
divorced [age, 7; satisfaction, 3]). Next, think forward and identify what you anticipate will be the most important high and low points of your life
in the future and how satisfied you believe you will be. Locate and mark these on the chart the same way. Finally, look back over your chart,
pick out any point or points along your life course that you would call a turning point – where your life really took a different direction. These
points may be already included or they may be other points. Mark them (∧ for positive turning points or ∨ for negative) and briefly label them if
they are not already labeled.
