During a talk I gave on ‘Building a Legacy’, I introduced the term ‘a Frasier moment’ to describe a moment or an event that, if used positively, can become a defining moment in life.
I coined this term after watching an episode of Frasier from Series 7 called The Late Dr. Crane
In this episode, Frasier finds himself confronted with an announcement that he has died and ends up reading his own obituary! It is a very funny episode and this particular incident is especially so.
As Frasier reads his obituary he begins to reflect on everything that he’d hoped to have accomplished during his lifetime and he finds himself a little surprised at how he is described in the obituary! Regrets immediately begin to form in his mind until he is quickly reminded by his assistant Roz that he is not actually dead and that he still has time to alter the course of his life and thus end it with fewer regrets.
