Leadership Legacy

One powerful way I use to motivate myself is to think of what legacy I will leave. I imagine what I will have accomplished and the impact I will have had on people. My Leadership Legacy.

This is just another way to Set goals. It works.

From Kathryn Fialkowski's Blog:


Someone told me a story once, where a person was guided to look back at the journey of their life displayed on a tapestry. "It's beautiful and perfect," they said. The guide said, "wait, you are looking at the wrong side." And he flipped the tapestry over. There on the other side: knots, entanglement, loose threads. It was messy and complex. The guide said, "this is the journey as you lived it. The other side is what you leave behind."

That is so true about the lines or roads that we travel, the most important are the ones that we leave behind, makes you think doesn't it.

Hi Jim,

Thats a terrific post about leadership legacy.

We often look only ahead and we dont think of the impact our decsions may have. However if we look at thiings in a different way of what legacy we will be leaving that we can understand things often in a much clearer light
