Mourning the Death and Celebrating the Life of Dave Goldberg

I just got back to New York after a deeply moving day mourning the passing and celebrating the life of Dave Goldberg. The whole day was a powerful reminder that our resumes have very little to do with our eulogies. As it happens, Dave had a very impressive resume. But there was barely a mention of any of this during the tributes, which were all about the other things: how he made people feel, his integrity, his essence, his humility, his honesty, how he always showed up for his friends, how much he meant to them and to his family, the small kindnesses, lifelong passions, and the things that made him laugh. The tributes were a powerful reminder of how easily we forget that often what we prioritize during our days is not what our eulogies will cover. And this is one more thing I'm grateful to Dave for.
