The Settle Smart Quiz


What do I really want for
my complete life?

Take this quick 5-minute quiz to determine where in each of the five key facets, that make up your Life's Gem, you are currently making unconscious decisions and/or trade-offs.

Find out where you are currently across the settling spectrum of life and choose where you wish to be given the quality of life you're after. Be honest.

NOTE these are situational and relative and change over the course of one’s life. Don’t worry about a low score on a facet, it may simply be less of a current or aspirational priority for YOU! Take the Quiz, join the movement.

Embrace the Change and become your best self

It's about you.

Stop Settling® is the indicator of a person’s values and purpose and is predictive of the Quality of Life they desire.


Here’s the thing: You are complete. When at work. When at home. When in your community. You are the same person in every facet of your life. Although there are many sides to life, each varying and changing, you as a person must go through them all as a whole.


But before we go any further, throw away the notion that settling is always negative. That’s not necessarily the case. Settling unconsciously and habitually is a bad thing. It means you are making trade-offs with your time that you may or may not make otherwise. But when you choose to settle in and settle down consciously, it can be the most sanity-saving, joy-inducing, productivity-generating habit you have.


Thus, it is crucial and imperative that you become self-aware of unconscious habits and break the cycle of involuntarily settling. To piece-meal yourself and your time to fit the many facets of life is disrespectful of your full potential, your happiness, and your health.

Embrace the Change and become your best self

The facets of an integrated life.


This is, in short, how you define your job both in and out of the home. You may or may not be paid for this but the actions here are to achieve your vision of success in your work. This can be a freelance job, traditional corporate career, school, etc.


How do you give back to your community? Do you volunteer, donate, go out, and support local farmers? This is where you give back to your community, city, country, and/or the world at large.


Your circle of friends is where you have fun, connect on shared interests, and recharge. This encompasses any activity with your social circles, e.g.,  book club, game nights, dinners/lunches, going to sporting events, etc.


This includes both your genetic family, e.g. parents, kids, grandparents, in-laws, etc., and/or the family you've chosen for yourself. Blood is not always thicker than water.


It’s easy to think of your health within the limitations of physical health, but it’s not. Mental, physical, and emotional wellness belong here; physical activities like running and yoga, as well as activities like hobbies, meditation, and passion projects.
