The Legacy We Leave

This One Habit Will Define Your Legacy

Does trying to be a good person ever get hard?

You want to do the right thing, make the right calls, and stick to what you should, but it's just hard to know what that is all of the time?

I'm with you. Creating a powerful legacy of good feels like an impossible task. And it can be, if you try to do everything all at once. You can't save the world and be an involved friend to everyone who crosses your path. You can't always say yes and at the same time set boundaries. 

If you want to leave a legacy of good, you have one simple task to do: strive to leave every space you enter better than you found it. 

That's it. You don't have to fix it, revolutionize the system, or become a saviour. All you need to do is leave it better than you found it.

Think about it. Imagine if everyone around you walked into a space with the intention to improve what was around them. The ripple effect it would have, the mindsets that would change and the growth that would take place. This habit is a legacy defining one. It's simple, easy, and an extremely effective way to positively influence the world. All you can do is all you can do, and that's okay. But as you work to improve, encourage, and restore in small ways, each tiny action compounds to a life that screams "do good!" 

Trying to do everything won't get you anywhere, but you are equipped, capable, and competent of making real change in the world. One step at a time. Leave people better than you found them. Take care of your spaces and things. Work hard, show up, and do your best at whatever you do.

Quote of the day

No matter what happens in life be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

- Taylor Swift


Legacy is about life not death.

Legacy isn’t tomorrow. Legacy is now. How people think of you now is how people will think of you then. Today’s footprint is tomorrow’s legacy.

Everyone leaves a legacy. Leadership is all about what you leave behind.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

7 Legacy blockers:

  1. Lack of focus.
  2. Living the life others want you to live.
  3. Bitterness, anger, and fear.
  4. Consumerism.
  5. Urgencies that smother priorities.
  6. Safety.
  7. Defeatism. “It won’t matter.”

Build legacy by eliminating behaviors and attitudes that dilute impact. It’s not enough to add positive behaviors; eliminate bad.

The only time to build legacy is now.

The only way to change legacy is to change now.

10 ways to build powerful legacy:

  1. Dare to be joyful. Serve in ways that bring you joy. Angry, unhappy people leave sad legacies.
  2. Monitor your impact on others. What are you doing when you make the biggest difference. Do more of that.
  3. Develop and maximize your talent, strengths, and skills. Know yourself – Bring yourself.
  4. Do what matters now. Everyone who’s at the end of life says it goes by fast.
  5. Seize small opportunities. Big may follow. Stop waiting to make a difference.
  6. Start with those closest to you and the ones you spend the most time with.
  7. Bring your best self to work and family. Everyone has at least two selves. Bring out the best one.
  8. Think service not success.
  9. Relax. Don’t run around building a legacy. Run around making a difference.
  10. Elevate the needs of others over your own.

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”

Charles Dickens
