Last week I had the great opportunity to attend the Cre8con conference in Portland, Oregon. I heard inspired and inspiring speakers. The most inspirational point of the conference for me, was to hear from nearly every speaker, that we need to keep doing what we’re doing and do it well.
We shouldn’t try to be someone else or copy someone else, but remain authentic in doing what you do. For each of the conference speakers, adhering to this ideal had made each successful. We don’t need to measure what we do against someone else and what they do and we especially should avoid the monetary comparison.
Our legacy is being developed every day and we might as well create a legacy that is thoroughly our own. We can’t live someone else’s legacy. If we want a legacy that means something, then it needs to reflect us and what we do, are called to do, are great at doing, and love doing.
Then at every stratum we will leave a memorable legacy.
