Focus on Defining Your Life Legacy

How would your life change if you knew the one thing that you wanted written on your tombstone? One way to develop this type of focus is outlined by authors Gary Keller and Jay Papasan in their book The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. In it, they share interesting insights to help you live a life with purpose, to live by priority, and to live for productivity.\r\n\r\nIn this blog entry, I want to focus on how their central message can help you define your legacy. Here are a few of their tips:\r\n\r\n1. Find happiness by making your life about something bigger. Little by little, I have learned, sometimes the hard way, that to aspire to something bigger in my life, I should stop thinking about what’s in it for me, and instead focus on adding value to others.\r\n\r\n2. Discover your “Big Why.” What motivates you to get up in the morning and continue throughout the day?\r\n\r\n3. What’s the “One Thing” you want to make your life about? I found this tip crucial. Defining our purpose is not only about picking the one legacy we want to leave, but perhaps more important, it’s about the things that we will intentionally say no to. Doing a little bit of everything will likely translate into a diluted legacy.\r\n\r\nCount on me to help you define your legacy. What’s your “One Thing”? Let us know by clicking here.\r\n\r\nPercy M.
