The Funeral Test

Imagine yourself at a funeral. Many people are gathered for the person who has died. When you see the name of the dead person - you see that it's your name.

Now there are 3 persons who are going to give a short speech about you:

  1. One of your family members (maybe wife or husband, son or daughter)
  2. Your best friend and the third person
  3. Your office friend

Now you decide what you want to hear from those three persons - How good are you as a husband or wife, dad or mom, as a best friend, as an office worker?

Use this test to figure out your purpose.
