A legacy isn’t a choice…it’s a result. It’s the culmination of choices and actions over time. You're going to have one. But which legacy is completely up to you. And every moment counts. Choose wisely.
if doing what you're doing isn't worth talking about, doesn't inspire anyone...doesn't leave a legacy? How sad if you're just trudging along, waiting for that lucky break.
So don't wait…
- Set the bar
- Tell someone about it
- And start moving down the path, bit by bit
At a minimum, your journey will be more interesting.
Sitting here drinking an authentic Mexican Coca Cola (yes, there is a difference) while peering over the top of my Macbook Air at the ocean (I have my priorities)...I came across this little riff from David Wolanski
I've been working on making changes myself so that mine isn't a colorless cubicle shaped stew pot. Part of it is preparing mentally, and part of it is thinking about how to use the tools at hand to shape something that is my own version of heaven on earth. Bring beauty and encouragement to others. Give of my time talent and treasure to make a heaven here on earth and leave a legacy behind that outlives my time this side of the veil.
Amen...and don't settle for anything less.
I like simplicity. And, with regard to work, I think it can be boiled down to this...
You're either involved with something that's meaningful and has the power to make a difference in people's lives...something likely to leave a legacy. Or you're doing just enough to get by and manufacturing lies to cover up mediocrity.
