Obviously, you need to get the right amount of perspective. The best tool for that, I’ve found, is a famous principle of Stephen Covey’s: begin with the end in mind.
And here’s how he tells us to do that:
By imagining what we’d like people to say about us at our funeral. Do we want them to say that we were kind-hearted, or charitable, or loving, or successful, or that we accomplished great things, or found a cure for cancer? However we want to be remembered, that’s how we should live our lives, every moment of every day, starting right now.
