    Lux Narayan starts his day with scrambled eggs and the question: "Who died today?"

    Why? By analyzing 2,000 New York Times obituaries over a 20-month period, Narayan gleaned, in just a few words, what achievement looks like over a lifetime.

    Here he shares what those immortalized in print can teach us about a life well lived. If you can get over his Indian heavy accent it's worth a watch (about 5mins).

    I really liked this! Thanks for posting. I just turned on the subtitles, and they were actually well done. I like reading obituaries too. He hit the nail on the head at the end.
