  • To start this activity, allow participants about 2 minutes to brainstorm all of the most important parts of their life.
  • Pass out a pie chart and writing utensil to every participant.
  • All participants should make a pie chart of the parts of their life that they brainstormed. The larger the slice of pie, the more important it is in your life.
  • If participants would like, they can also color each of the slices of their lives to show the differences.
  • Allow everyone to share as little or as much as they would like.


  • Use this activity to discuss time management! Make a list of the things that you spend the most time on. Create a pie chart to represent how much of your day/week/month/year those things take up. Then, have a conversation about how that affects you and what changes you might make.
