Legacy think: How will you create legacy?

‘The only thing you take with you when you’re gone is what you leave behind.’  John Allston

What will people remember about you when you are gone? What are you leaving behind? What kind of an impact are you making on our world?

 Creating legacy means doing something now that is still accessible after you are gone. You may aim for your legacy to be accessible to as many people as possible. Or you may want to make a deep impact, even if only on a few people. My belief (though you may disagree) is that you should aim for your legacy to be both accessible to as many people as possible, and leave a deep an impact on those accessing it.

 Whatever you do, remember: the time to create legacy is now. You don’t know what’s coming tomorrow. Don’t leave it too late, or our world will be bereft of your input forever.

 You can create legacy by pursuing one or more legacy goals throughout your lifetime. I will talk about legacy goals in the next blog post of the ‘legacy think’ series. Until then, have a think: how will you create your legacy?
