Learning about life from obituaries

Social media businessman Lux Narayan starts every day with breakfast and the New York Times obituaries. After using machine learning to analyze 2,000 of them, Narayan started seeing similarities in what achievement looks like over a lifetime. Most interesting to him was that the most common words used for both non-famous and famous people’s accomplishments are “first” and “help.” How will you use your talents to contribute positively to society?

Use them to be AWESOME!
