I had a short conversation with a new friend yesterday. Our discussion centered on the recent loss of a loved one, and their legacy.ย It got me thinking, as these things do, about my legacy. It is easy to descend the rabbit holes of Netflix, and text messages, and cleaning, or other time-consuming things. As much as we enjoy or feel compelled to participate, they donโ€™t seem epitaph worthy.

Do you want to be a beloved parent, spouse, child, or friend? A gifted artist?ย An advocate for the needy? A philanthropist? A prolific writer? Legacies donโ€™t show up without work, effort and determination, every single day. What will they write on your tombstone?

What can you do today to take a small step toward your legacy?
