One of the Most Important Questions of Our Life

If you were asked the question in the caricature below, what would be your answer?

After the stroke, this was the question that made me most fearful of dying. I did not want to leave this life, without feeling like I had contributed my best to this world.

The money I made or did not make, or the profession I had, were as far from my mind as Pluto is from the earth. The feeling that I had not done what I came here to do stuck to me like a second skin.

Today my life is focused on writing, speaking, teaching and communicating in any way I can, attributes for being our best selves in this world. In other words, I facilitate  and inspire conversations  that help people change their own lives as well as that of those around them and the organizations they serve.

Like me, many people have to change their focus and their attitude to contribute their very best to the world. It makes living, and the inevitable dying, so much easier.

As an inspiration, check out  Patti LaBelle’s 1984 song ‘I’ve got a New Attitude.’ Feel the joy and music  that she gives to the world. What do you do for the world?
