We're a generation obsessed with legacy: Leaving behind a piece of ourselves so we won't be forgotten.
Sir Ken Robinson was a personal hero of mine who spoke sense and inspired creativity.
He, sadly, passed away in August 2020.
“What you do for yourself dies with you when you leave this world, what you do for others lives on forever.”
If you want to leave a positive legacy, think less of leaving your name behind and think more of leaving an important and positive impact (your filtered Instagram posts won't be it, nor will a 6-figure marketing strategy sold to others, nor will Amazon and the ways they’re slowly destroying the planet, their disregard for employee rights and their history of crushing small businesses).
Is your focus on yourself, or on making this world a better place, without harming others?
What's the story you tell yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
But remember - it's your life, your choice!
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
