Tip of the hat to Marilyn Hahn for passing this on to me.
Looking for meaning? Having trouble figuring out how to make a difference? The answer may be closer and simpler than you think.
If I were gone tomorrow, what will I be most proud of having left behind?The answer will be different for each of us, but it may tell you something about why you're here. Your answer can be as involved as a foundation you helped start, or as simple as a favorite picture that you took. Something will be here when you're gone. What would you like it to be? What one thing would tell the world what you were all about? Maybe it's your child.
Maybe you're already working on something that could turn into one of your greatest accomplishments. If so, give it your all. The more of yourself that goes into it now, the more people will be able to see you later on.
If you'd like to share your one thing, please feel free to comment. I'm thinking about mine and will try to comment about it soon.
