Have you every considered writing a eulogy on your friend’s facebook wall? Eulogies are often associated with the end of life, but the actual Greek etymology of the word shows that it actually means “Good Word”:

Greek = good, well, normal; happy, pleasing
Examples: euphemism, euphoria, eugenics

Greek = talk, speech, speak; word
Examples: biology, psychology, etc

Why wait until our friends are no longer with us to affirm them, uplift them, and build them up by telling them how much they inspire us, how special they are, and how good they make us feel?

Don’t wait until graduation. Eulogize (affirm, appreciate, thank) while they are in front of you in the present moment.

Live purposefully!

Jullien's Purpose Statement

My purpose is to help as many people as possible reach their full potential by helping them making a living doing what they love and in the process of doing so achieve my own. I want to do this through writing, speaking, and creating offline and online spaces that facilitate conversations around purpose.
