Based on my book, Right Place, Right Time, this brief online assessment asks a few simple questions to help discover whether where you currently live is the best fit for you today and into the future.

You will be presented with a series of statements covering five dimensions of life: Place, Purpose, Social Connection, Physical Well-Being, and Financial Well-Being. For each statement, please indicate on a scale of 1 to 5 how much you agree or disagree.


Place encompasses country, region, state, metropolitan area, neighborhood, and physical dwelling. Place directly and indirectly impacts one's well-being.

1. Where I live feels like home.
2. My region, state and metropolitan area are positioned for growth in the years and decades ahead.
3. I do not expect climate change to make my place less desirable to live.
4. I do not feel burdened with my time or finances to maintain my current home.
5. My home can adequately accommodate mobility or health challenges I, my partner or frequent family visitors have today or in the future.


People with a clear purpose, particularly in regard to a cause greater than themselves, live longer and healthier lives. In fact, purpose is one of the best predictors of happiness.

1. I have purpose in my life that is greater than myself and helps motivate me on a daily basis.
2. I find purpose in my work, family responsibilities or retirement.
3. I have meaningful relationships with family and friends.
4. I volunteer or provide service to others on a regular basis.
5. I am actively involved in an affinity group, such as a faith community, fitness group, community organization, etc., in my local community.


A key part of living a long, healthy life is developing and maintaining relationships. Loneliness has been found to be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and can increase the risk of premature death by as much as 30%.

1. I rarely feel lonely.
2. I have close relationships with whom I can share important things in my life.
3. I have family or close friends who live physically close to me.
4. I see friends on a regular basis (at least twice per week) in person.
5. I know most of my neighbors.


Exercise impacts physical well-being in a plethora of ways, from strengthening muscles to improving cardiovascular health to sharpening minds. Our diet and sleeping patterns matter, too.

1. I am physically active, such as going on a brisk walk, at least three times per week.
2. My exercise routine involves a mix of aerobic, interval, and resistance training.
3. I generally maintain a healthy diet.
4. I do not smoke and my alcohol consumption is moderate (less than 1-2 drinks per day).
5. I consistently get enough sleep to feel recharged and prepared for the day.


Being financially prepared for a long life is critical. In fact, an increasing number of financial advisors recommend planning to live to at least 100 years old. Note that financial security has three times the impact of income alone on overall well-being.

1. I have a financial plan that I have confidence in that looks beyond five years.
2. I have outside resources, including family, that could help me should a need arise beyond my financial means.
3. I do not expect to have family or friends that will need my financial assistance.
4. I expect to have the ability and opportunity to work beyond traditional retirement age, even if on a part-time basis, if so desired.
5. Excluding the equity value of my primary home (if applicable), I am confident that I have the financial means to live to 100 years of age with an acceptable quality of life.
