For some reason I woke up this morning thinking about my legacy… What I’d leave behind in my wake: chaos or that of a life well lived?
It’s no surprise I instantly thought of my Dad. Although he passed away 30 years ago he has a family of 6 kids that hold him in high regard despite never reaching his potential.
No doubt I’m on this thought track because I’m now deeply involved in running a small business. And, as most of you know, when you’re involved in running an SBE (small biz enterprise) with great growth opportunities, it can be an all-encompassing effort, straining all other relationships and leaving brokenness in other parts of your life in its wake.
What will my legacy be?
Kim and I are now deep in the throes of being “empty nest-ers.” Daniel was born before I was 25, Adam 2 1/2 years later. Even though we talk and see them fairly regularly, and Daniel actually works at The Allasso Group driving all social media initiatives, I find I miss them more than I can say. Yet I know its all a part of the circle of life and it must be the way it must be.
What will your legacy be? Have you thought of it? I’d really like to hear from you.
I learned long ago that I was born for a purpose–with a set of skills that had markeplace value, yes. But born with a God-given purpose much greater than only making a successful business. What’s your purpose? I really want to know. Seriously… let me know what you’re thinking.
Life is a journey. We were not designed to do it alone. Let’s partner up!
