The notion of "life effectiveness" is that there are some personal skills that are important factors in how effective a person will be in achieving his/her desires/wishes in life.

Steven Covey is probably best known for this type of approach -- he conceived of the well-known "7 Habits of Highly Effective People".

To get a broad sense of a person's life effectiveness, consider how well he/she is functioning at work/school, as well as in personal and social life.  Underlying performance in these various aspects of life, are some core personal effectiveness skills which can be developed and learned.

Life effectiveness is closely related to notions of "personal skills", "life fitness", "practical intelligence, "personal competence" and "self-efficacy".
