Personally, I am a guy with an inquisitive mind and a drive to always learn new things. I believe that everyone can be capable at what they want if they are willing to apply themselves. I love working with people and together fulfilling all our potential. I always see any managerial / coaching opportunities as a chance to help people to their true potential. This is achieved by seeing what someone is capable of and working with them so that they see that too.
Does it concern you that your name one day will fade from peoples’ lips and memories? That your life had very little impact on?
I was shocked to look up the definition of “Legacy” and read: “an amount of money or property left to someone in a will.” As in: "my grandmother died and unexpectedly left me a small legacy." Here was I thinking of grandiose things left to you like:
- Grandma’s Secret Sauce recipe (think Colonel Sanders)
- The Solution to the Riemann Hypothesis
- A fleet of rare and vintage cars
In an article in The Guardian: “Ten of the Strangest Wills of All Time”, people used their will as a romantic gesture (a rose every day to someone’s wife). A way of lashing out at one’s family ($110 million not to be distributed until 21 years after the death of their last surviving grandchild). Or what best could be described as a mindless act (a fortune left to 70 strangers randomly chosen from a phone book).
Faith is when we have no reason to believe something, but we do, anyway.
