What are the broad areas of your life that you put effort into? Mine used to be binary: either Work or Party. It's only more recently that I'm beginning to see that my life gets better when I put time and effort towards my improving my health, keeping my house tidy, or keeping my finances in order.

I know it sounds preposterous, but I'm really used to just working really hard, then partying really hard, and not much else. Now that I've been dumbfounded by the obvious value in maintaining my health or tidying up after myself, I really have no idea if I'm neglecting other key areas that everyone else knows about.
The old phrase: Healthy, Wealthy and Wise seems pretty useful, but surely it's not meant to be comprehensive.
Are there good books or resources on this? Have any of you guys been through a time of sorting out one's priorities? Or does anyone have a rough system, or rule of thumb, they find useful?
