Think of the long term.
Often the pressures of the day and the challenges ahead that we face will push us to immediately decide what to do next. It is critical that you also formulate quick decisions under the consideration of the legacy that you wish to leave with others.
Each of us has a legacy to leave with others. A legacy is not saved just for the giants of their era or the heroes of a sport. The character applied in your decisions and the lives that you genuinely touch along the way may be fewer in number, but just as meaningful.
What stories will be told of you from the decisions you have made and the actions you have purposefully taken with others?
You are writing the storylines of your legacy each and every day.
“Your story is the greatest legacy that you will leave to your friends. It’s the longest-lasting legacy you will leave to your heirs.” — Steve Saint —
