Lux Narayan kick's off his day with scrambled eggs & the question: "Who died today?" Lux analyzed 2,000 obituaries for nearly two years to get insights into what ones lifetimes achievements looks like.
Enjoy these insights on what a life well lived looks like. This talk was presented at an official TED conference in New York.
We uncovered, many lessons from lives well-led, and what those people immortalized in print could teach us. The exercise was a fascinating testament to the kaleidoscope that is life, and even more fascinating was the fact that the overwhelming majority of obituaries featured people famous and non-famous, who did seemingly extraordinary things. They made a positive dent in the fabric of life. They helped.
Because the most powerful lesson here is, if more people lived their lives trying to be famous in death, the world would be a much better place
