Are You Living Your Resume or Eulogy?
I had the honor of both attending and speaking at the annual Wisdom 2.0 conference in San Francisco recently.  The event was great, and one of the highlights for me was listening to an inspiring talk given by Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post.  In her talk she asked us a powerful question: “Are you living your resume or your eulogy?”

Her question gave me pause, and I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit ever since.  In this week’s vlog, I talk about why it can be challenging for us to focus on what truly matters and why we’re often caught up in our desire to “get ahead” (aka focus on our resume). I also offer some suggestions about how we can keep things in perspective, focus on what’s most important to us and stay connected to the kind of impact we want to have in the world (aka our eulogy).

Check out the video below and feel free to leave a comment about how this relates to you and your life here on my blog.
