'There are so many ways to 'break down' life -- or a life -- in order to understand it and, maybe, to optimize it.
How do you break things down? What are the main areas of your life? If you had to name 3 or 4 or 5 main areas of your life, what would the labels be?
Say your life, metaphorically speaking, is a 'building' -- like a house, an office complex, or a workshop -- what would the main 'rooms' of your life be?
Or if you were to present a photo album / slide show of your life: where would the snapshots of your life go? Under what sections or headings? How would you label the major sections?
These major labels, sections, or areas of your life could be something to come back to as ways of organizing, in one's own way, one's life.'
