Third: Start With the End in Mind

When I read Stephen R. Covey's book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, I particularly liked the habit, “start with the end in mind.” Start by writing your obituary. How do you want to be remembered? Do you want to be remembered for your money and fame, or for your integrity?

Next, pretend you have only a week to live. What would you want to do if you only had one week to live? Would it be to work more hours at the office? Would it be to buy that new car? Would it be to have renewed an old friendship? Would it be to finish your personal history? How would you spend that last week?

Now, pretend you have only a month to live. What would you do differently if you knew you only had one month to live? Now pretend you have only a year to live, five years to live, and finally a life to live; write down what you would do in that time. Starting with the end in mind will help you prioritize your goals and realize what things are important to you.
