I ran across this question last week – I’m not sure where. Possibly a blog or a book. Anyway … It’s been rattling around my head since then. What DO I want to be known for? What kind of person do I want people to remember or know me as?
Some answers to this are easy – kind, fun, generous, etc. Others, not so much. I want to be known for doing something with my life (pretty vague, I know) but I don’t want to be known as someone who wasted their life not fully living it.
And then comes the inevitable question – AM I known for these things? What can I do to more align with how I want to be known? Am I a kind, generous person? Am I doing things that hold be back from living a full life? Am I the kind of person my (future) kids will admire and want to be like?
