My team Psychologist is always giving me things to ponder.
She recently sent out a note with advice on how to help patients better understand their values. Ask them, "Imagine that you are at the end of your life and being laid to rest. What do you hope your loved ones will put on your tombstone? What would they say about you and how you lived your life?"
What would I hope for?
"He was a good man to his wife, children, extended family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers and patients."
