Is this the kind of statement you want on your tombstone?
"Here Lies ..... , a man (or woman) who successfully managed to experience a 3 to 1 ratio of positive to negative thoughts.”
I think I want my tombstone to say something about me being a loving father, caring husband, and someone who sought to improve this human condition. I bet you ... have similar hopes and values.
