The Lifebook Quest is different from the other Mindvalley courses I’ve taken. It’s about defining what you want in your life in 12 different areas. I’ve already been doing the Level 10 Life for a while, so this sounded like a great way to delve deeper into that practice of looking at each area of my life and coming up with visions that would carry me forward. I took The Lifebook Quest Masterclass and was super excited to take this 30-day challenge. I got my husband excited. And we did every single day of the quest. This Lifebook Quest review is about our experience and thoughts.
Lifebook Quest Is A 30-Day Challenge That Requires Some Time From You
For 30 days, you are going to be taking a look at 12 different areas of your life deeply, coming up with a life vision, and creating goals to move you towards that vision. You need to commit to doing this quest for all 30 days.
You also need to dedicate about 20 minutes each day to watch the video included where Jon Butcher talks about the topic of the day.
And, besides the 20 minutes, you will need to take time to write down your thoughts and do the exercises after each video. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on you and the topic discussed. The last few days – when you are defining your life vision and goals setting – definitely take the most time.
Lastly, there are 7 audio calls where Jon Butcher and his wife answer questions. That’s almost 7 hours worth of extra material that can be listened to at any time – even after the course if you want.
Breaking It Up Into Days Helps You Absorb The Information
I do like this aspect of it. I think that breaking it down into 30 little sections helps you stick with it and take some time to clearly look at each area of your life.
There are 12 areas of your life looked at, and you spend two days on each area with the second day taking a deeper dive into it.
For instance, Day 3 is about Your Ideal Health and Fitness, and Day 4 is about Your Health and Fitness Purpose.
The last 6 days of the quest (once you’ve looked at all 12 areas of your life) are focused on your life vision, goals, and taking action.
The Quest Starts On A Certain Day
This isn’t something you can just start today. Since we took it starting on March 4th of 2018, there has been a specific date every month or two. I haven’t totally caught on to how much time they put in between quests. But, I will update this review with the next quest each time I hear about it.
The next Lifebook Quest begins on Monday, September 3rd, 2018.
The next Lifebook Quest begins on Monday, September 3rd, 2018.
But, the upside to this is that you start on the same date as other people. That means you can interact with them and post your comments, daily exercise results, and questions on the day where other people are thinking about the same aspect of life as you.
And, once all the days are open, you get access to them for life. So, you can take the quest over and over again if you want.
What You Need To Do To Get The Most Out Of This Quest
To get the most out of the quest, you need to not only watch the videos each day, but you also need to do the exercises. You can watch Jon Butcher talk about each aspect of life, but he’s talking about himself and his thoughts and feelings. In order to access your own thoughts and feelings, you need to do the exercises.
That’s what Lifebook is really about. It’s about you. It’s about creating a life vision based on your unique life, beliefs, wants, needs, etc. That makes it a very personal self-development program, which I think is very beneficial for personal growth, happiness, and success.
If you don’t do the exercises, you will not delve into YOUR life and get the insights needed to move forward. Therefore, if you don’t think you want to do the work and take the action required in the exercises, don’t take the quest because it won’t do much for your life.
Also, Do The Assessment
In the beginning of the quest, you will be asked to do an assessment on Lifebook’s website. You will need to sign up through an email, but you get instant access to the assessment.
In this assessment, you go through each category talked about in The Lifebook Quest and answer questions on a scale from Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree.
It takes a good 20 minutes to get through, depending on how well you know yourself and how much you need to think about the question, but at the end, you get a report that helps you see where you are at in each of the 12 areas of your life as well as what you need to work on the most.
Make sure you take screenshots of the findings, because they are not delivered to you. That could change in the future, but for me, I had to take screenshots and paste them into my online notebook where I took notes for the course.
After the 30 days is up, you will take this assessment again to see if you’ve progressed at all.
Lifebook Quest Is The Starting Point In The Lifebook Journey
The first thing you read on the sales page for Lifebook Quest is that in just 30 days you are going to have a complete vision for your entire future. But, that’s not exactly true.
Lifebook Quest is kind of like the 101 course in the Lifebook curriculum. It’s a course where you think about different areas of your life deeply by answering some questions that some people may never answer. And, when you are finished, you can move on to other Lifebook courses that apparently offer you a deeper look into your life.
When we started Lifebook Quest, there were some people on the Facebook page taking the next level, which is called MyLO – My Lifebook Online. I think it’s offered through Mindvalley at certain times during the year, but there was not a lot of clarity around it.
The MyLO group ended up creating their own Facebook page to separate themselves from those of us who were taking the quest, but from what I gathered, they were looking at the same areas of life as we were, just in a different kind of structure created by Jon Butcher and his wife.
The thing is that MyLO isn’t just accessible right now. From what I understand, you receive an invitation to it, during sometime in the year, after you’ve taken the Lifebook Quest. And, the people who were taking it now had an opportunity to get their money back (I think it was about $500) if they finished all the criteria in a certain amount of time. But, there wasn’t a lot of talk about it, so I’m not really sure when MyLO opens up, how much it is, and what’s involved in it.
Some of the people taking MyLO seemed to have taken the quest, so obviously they wanted to keep delving into their life more. And, a lot of people who were taking the quest made their interest in continuing to MyLO known on the Facebook page.
In any case, the last day of the quest you get told about the full Lifebook program. Jon Butcher says that by doing the challenge, you are already years ahead of 99% of people on the planet when it comes to creating a life vision. But if you want to move forward, you can clarify that life vision so that it pulls your life forward every day. It’s supposed to be a system that helps you create the best life you are capable of living.
Who Will Benefit From The Lifebook Quest?
Anyone who wants to understand themselves better and take a deeper look at their life.
It’s also good for someone who wants to create better habits in their life and even let go of some old, bad habits. In fact, in a few aspects of life, you are asked to pick a new habit to carry out for the remainder of the quest.
For example, on day 14 you choose one habit to instill in your love life, whether you are single or in a relationship. My husband and I picked a love habit that we weren’t doing, and we enjoyed it so much we are still doing it to this day.
This quest will also benefit people looking for meaning in their life. This is because you sit down and think about every aspect of your life and how you can improve. You take a look at what is working and what’s not working, and you create a plan, strategies, or habits to help you move towards something that is more exciting to you and has meaning to you.
In summary, anyone who wants to…
- Find bad habits and break them.
- Create better habits.
- Reduce negative self talk.
- Get clearer on your beliefs on how they are serving you.
- Create clearer goals to help you get what you want.
- Improve your relationships.
- Be a better example in this world.
- Get clearer on career goals.
- Do things that truly make you happy.
- Define who you are and what you want.
… will also benefit from this course.
It’s all about YOU and understanding yourself better.
Who (Probably) Won’t Benefit From The Lifebook Quest?
This quest is all about taking a deeper look at your life. I’ve done that quite a bit over the years, and quite deeply when I took on the Level 10 Life concept. So, I had thought about a lot of the stuff in this quest already. There were a few things that I hadn’t thought about and there were a few insights gained, but I’ve spent so much time reflecting on this stuff that I guess I had already done a Lifebook Quest before I took the quest! My husband felt the same way.
But, I’ve had years of reflection on my life through personal development courses and books, and through blogging about personal development almost daily. In fact, I’m a freelance writer, and one of my clients wanted one post per day on the topic of self-improvement for almost two years. So, through research, educating myself, and applying new thoughts, habits, and behaviors to my life, I’ve really gone deep into personal development.
If you have spent years on personal development and feel like you have taken a good look at all your life’s different aspects, then this quest probably isn’t for you. You may gain some insight into your life, but, it would probably be in your best interest to take the full Lifebook program and skip the quest – or simply move on doing what you are doing.
That said, everyone is different. There were some people on the Facebook page that seemed to have a lot of personal development in their history but still enjoyed this quest.
There is a 10-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out for a few days, tackle a few different areas of your life, and get a better idea on whether or not Jon Butcher is going to help you delve deeper into your life than you already have.
Is The Lifebook Quest For You?
Here’s what I think: The Lifebook Quest is a challenge that will help you get on your way to living life to the fullest, because, you can only live a full life when you understand who you are and what you want out of life!
It will help you get a clearer definition of your goals and life vision. If you are dedicated to improving your life in all different aspects of your life, then this quest can help you do that.
If you are NOT willing to take action and do the exercises, then The Lifebook Quest isn’t for you. It won’t do you any good because it’s not just about listening to someone talk. It’s about taking action and putting in the work to look closely at your life, try new habits, and develop new insights into who you are and what you want.
