About the legacy you leave when gone

They say: ” The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy”

Talking about Legacy… Have you ever thought what do you want to be remembered for/as?

Perhaps you might want to be remembered for different things by different people in your lives?

by yourself
by your parents
by your spouse/girl friend
by your children
by your work colleagues
by your university/school friends
by your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband

Could be your character, your skill, your behavior, your values, your conduct – or anything else you would like to include.

This question could also lead you to introspect and ask yourself – who are my priorities in life/the most important people in my life – for some it could be family or friends. For some it could be colleagues.

Whose opinion really matters?
