Write Your Obituary to Clarify Your Life/Work

Are you unclear on your life goals? Here is an exercise to help. Think about your funeral. Someone is speaking about your life. Someone is highlighting what you accomplished. What would you most like that person to say?  Write those highlights down.

Or compose your Ideal Obituary. What do you want it to say? Write it down as best you are able. If you want to give something to the world and don’t yet know what, then say what you can. But do give it serious thought.  This is your life.

And remember that this is an Ideal Obituary. This is not a place to concern yourself with being very “realistic”.  That certainly matters and must be considered. But first it is important to open up options.  For your Ideal Obituary, learn what you most want!
