. Here's the comment that I offered:
Making a conscious decision to leave a legacy focuses the mind and activity toward a higher level of significance in life. Sometimes, the first exercise I'll do with a client is to envision their 80th birthday celebration. When it's time for toasts, what do they want for their significant other to say? Their children? Their business colleagues? Their community leaders? Etc. It's a simple visualization, but it has a lot of power. It can help nudge folks out of the now and the current things that seem so permanent and overwhelming.
Take some time today to answer those questions. What do you want for others to say about you at your 80th birthday celebration? And then, how can you plan to make it happen today?
