Ask yourself:

  1. What are your negative work habits and traits?
  2. Does any part of your education or training need improvement?
  3. Where would other people take advantage of you?
  4. Where can you improve?
  5. What are you most likely to avoid?


Look at the external factors that you can take advantage of to pursue your goals and dreams.

Ask yourself:

  1. Is there new technology in your industry?
  2. Is there a new skill or trait you possess?
  3. Is your industry growing?

Look at your strengths, and ask yourself if they open up any opportunities.

Look at your weaknesses, and ask yourself if you could open up opportunities by eliminating these weaknesses.


Look at any threats to your career or life growth, this part sees if any external factors could hurt your chances to attain your goals.

Ask yourself:

  1. What is the biggest danger to your goals?
