Write Your Own Obituary to Take Stock of Your Accomplishments and Goals
It may sound morbid, but writing your own obituary and considering the way you want to be remembered by your friends and loved ones is an excellent way to get perspective on what you've done and where you'd like to go, both professionally and personally.
Stepcase Lifehack points out that writing your obituary, hopefully years before your death, gives you a unique opportunity to think about how you'd like to be remembered, remember your own mortality, and immediately take stock of your life goals and where you are in making them reality.
It's also a good opportunity to take stock of whether you're happy with what you're doing, and happy with the direction you're moving in life, or if now is as good a time as any to think about changing course and becoming the person you want to be remembered as, if you're not there already. What do you think, is it over the top or a good opportunity for a self-review? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. Photo by Jason Hickey.
