We discuss how to pick a charitable cause that fits with your personality and career.
But if I write my eulogy, what do I want to be known for? I want to be known for helping people. I want to be known for, encouraging people. I want to be known for making sure that people feel better after an interaction with me than they did before the interaction with me.

- Understand who you are, and what’s intrinsically important to you
- Align yourself with an employer that has the same ideals
- Try to align yourself with clients that have the same ideals
Internal soul searching
