Are You Living Your Eulogy or Your Resume?
At HuffPost we’ve made the Third Metric — redefining success beyond money and power to include well-being, wisdom and our ability to wonder and to give — a key editorial focus. But while it’s not hard to live a Third Metric life, it’s very easy not to.
No matter how much a person spends his or her life burning the candle at both ends, chasing a toxic definition of success and generally missing out on life, the eulogy is always about the other stuff: what they gave, how they connected, how much they meant to the lives of the real people around them, small kindnesses, lifelong passions and what made them laugh.
So the question is: Why do we spend so much time on what our eulogy is not going to be?
“Eulogies aren’t résumés,” David Brooks wrote in June. “They describe the person’s care, wisdom, truthfulness and courage. They describe the million little moral judgments that emanate from that inner region.”
we shouldn’t wait until it’s our last day on Earth to begin prioritizing the things that really matter.
It shouldn’t take a near-death experience to remind us of what we’re all going to lose one day.According to Colors magazine, something called “living funeral therapy” is becoming increasingly popular in South Korea, which has the highest suicide rate of developed countries.

we need new structure et al.. but most of all we need a new mindset.. we know how to do that on an individual level.. but not on a systems level.. which would mean to transform capitalism, or economic institutions.. from ego awareness to eco awareness..
