Career & Life 2.0: Your legacy isn’t what is engraved on your tombstone …

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.
- Pericles

The record of your life – and your final rest isn’t your legacy. It isn’t where you were born or when you passed.

Your legacy is what you left behind for others.

Life is about more than today, and more than yourself. Life and legacy go hand in hand. It’s what others will remember about you – the impact you made, the relationships you have built, what have you have given back to your family, friends, the community, your employer and to those in need.

Think now what will your legacy be and if you are pleased with your direction – great – full steam ahead. If you are not – time to readjust and make a change. Think about what will your great-grandchildren will be told about you? What will those you worked with say about you? What wil your friends remember defined you.

Creating a legacy does not have to be a burden. It can be your joy and your mission in life and career and can create your satisfaction with living each day building your legacy. Think about what you want to leave behind. Start (or continue) building it today. Work hard, because you never know when it will be time to write your legacy.
