How do you keep your memoirs from sounding like everyone else's?

Someone asked me to assist them with their memoir. Should they decide on the theme for the memoir and write it according to the theme?

How do you know hen your life is interesting enough to read about?

I have a character pitching his memoirs. I have him drafting a proposal and sample chapters - because that's what the Writer's Digest columnist did :) Is that typical?

To piggyback on Jenna's question, how does one keep a perspective on writing a memoir so it is a compelling read rather than sounding as one is writing as a catharsis or to work out some issues in a public venue? I know that there can be a theme of lessons learned or redemption but how do you distinguish between what goes in my journal, stays in my journal and doing a tell all?
