THE QUESTION EVERY LEGACY MINDED LEADER OUGHT TO ASK IS HOW DO I WANT TO BE REMEMBERED? THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LEADER WHO WILL LEAVE A WORTHWHILE LEGACY AND ONE WHO WILL NOT IS WHETHER THAT QUESTION IS ASKED OR NOT
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND ANIMALS IS THAT WE SHOULD WANT TO BE REMEMBERED FOR DOING GOOD OR ACHIEVEMENT OF SOME SORT LEGACY IS WHAT SURVIVES YOU AND IS OF TANGIBLE OR INSPIRATIONAL BENEFIT TO OTHERS.
THOSE CONSIDERED TRULY GREAT INSPIRATIONAL AND TRANSFORMATIONAL FIGURES WERE FOCUSSED ON ACHIEVING SOMETHING FOR OTHERS. A VISION BEYOND THEIR OWN COMFORT, WEALTH OR PERSONAL OBJECTIVES.
IT COULD BE BRICK AND MORTAR BUT USUALLY GOES BEYOND THAT TO AN ENDURING INSPIRATION, ABLE TO MOTIVATE SUCCESSORS TO EMULATION. THE LEGACY IS THEN A WAY OF DOING THINGS, RATHER THAN JUST THE THING THAT WAS DONE.
