Defining Legacy, Its 4 Branches and 4 Important Questions About Living From Your Legacy
In defining legacy here is a start:
Legacy is the useful “whats” you gift others so they can learn something from your lived experience.
Those “whats” express the “time, effort and money contributions” you’ve made by taking action, staying active, remaining healthy and giving back.
Legacy is about living today based on intentions from the future.
And yes, you leave “things” when you pass along. However, the things you leave are less important than why and how you live.
Legacy is about the moments you share with family, friends, work colleagues and your community.
It’s about the decisions you make to live your great life, create well-living workplaces and co-create the well-living world.
It’s about the mistakes you made, the lessons learned and how you got back into the game of life.
It’s about your resilience and resourcefulness in fully expressing your freedom and fun.
Your legacy unfolds in four ways or like four branches of a sturdy tree.
