This is an edgy question for me and precisely because of that I am leaning into it. There can be a tendency to make our worlds too small, too tactical and big questions offer perspective. They can also give permission to trim down the to-do list and focus on the essential.

The whole idea of legacy puts our lives into perspective and in itself invites bigger questions. Whether we think about it or not we will leave some legacy, so what might it be?

I’m not sure it necessarily has to be something grandiose that we leave behind but perhaps the ripple effects on the world and people in it through our daily efforts to serve them.

I’m not therefore sure it even has to be something we only leave after us. In a way, each day we get to live into the legacy of our lives to date and add more ripples.

So, what pebbles might you throw into the pond today?
