What would you like people to say about you on your 80th birthday?

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

As my #birthday is around the corner, I thought I'd share one of my favorite #exercises borrowed and modified from the 7 Habits of Highly Effective training program from #Covey:


What would people say about on your 80th birthday? And would you like them to say? Are these different? Who will be there? Who else? These questions help clients to think long-term (unless your 80th birthday is soon) and start #dreaming about the #future and their #vision or #purpose. They also bring #awareness to what and who is #important to them. Once they described their future self & 80th birthday, you can then work backwards to see what needs to happen to get there.
