“In order to live by your core principles and values, you have to know what they are. So here’s a quick thought experiment that will help you identify them: imagine that you are witnessing your own memorial service. Your family and friends are going up to the podium to offer reflections about your life. What would you want them to say about you? Would you want them to remark about how generous you were? How you found the humor in everyday situations? How you would often go out of your way to help those in need? How you always honored your word?”
