Planning for a Life Well Lived

What does it mean to have lived a “Well Lived Life?” Previously, U.S. Trust’s annual survey has shown that satisfaction with increased wealth comes from being able to use it with increased purpose: To achieve goals, to make a difference in areas that matter most, and to live up to personal expectations. Their 2015 survey explored expectations of a life well lived, including: What does the phrase “a life well lived” mean, and does it change based on demographics? Must it be viewed retrospectively or can it be planned for proactively? Is behavior aligned with intentions? This session will examine varying definitions of achievement, and ask whether is it possible to succeed in all aspects of life simultaneously.
