Peter Drucker and Stephen Covey ask the same simple question to get at the heart of these:
“What do you want to be remembered for?”
Covey asks you to imagine your funeral:
- Who is there?
- What do you hope they’d say about you?
- Is this consistent with how you live now?
- Which goals and relationships matter, in the end?
- Which work and stresses fall into insignificance?
The answers to these questions are your compass.
