What Is Your Legacy?

When you wake up in the morning, do you think “how shall I leave my legacy today?” as you prep for the day? Maybe later on as you’re in traffic fighting other commuters are you pondering what legacy you shall leave? When you’re buried in your tasks at work…again…are you thinking what legacy you shall leave?

Chances are, the answer is “no” for a majority of people. It’s so easy to get caught up in work and paying bills that we forget about what it means to be a person, a whole person, that will leave a good legacy no matter where they are.

What legacy you leave can mean many things to many people. It doesn’t always have to be that morbid “when I die, what will people remember?” question. It can be something as simple as the legacy you leave at the place you work should you choose (or are forced) to get another job.

It’s a simple question that can lead to some profound actions and outcomes.

Instead of worrying about what you’ll watch on TV or what’s for dinner, ask the simple question “what will my legacy be?” and see how it changes your thoughts and changes your actions. You’ll find yourself wanting to be a better person, to create something good, or wanting to help someone out.

Stop and think about it for a minute. It’s actually a cool thing to think about. What would people remember about you if you suddenly left today? What do you want people to remember about you?

Time to fill that gap.
