A Good Life – from a Philosophic Standpoint

“We make a Living by what we Get, but we make a Life by what we Give.”

-Winston Churchill

In 7 Habits of Hightly Successful People, Stephen Covey begins the book with a thought experiment.  Imagine you are in a funeral, and all your loved ones are there – but you’re the one in the casket.  What are people saying about you?

In order to begin your goal setting experience with the book, Covey asks the reader to imagine the conversations, dialogue and eulogy in the funeral – and that if you lived a good life, what would people say?
