Question: How would you like to be thought of and remembered by your family and friends in years to come?
(Side note: This is the question I missed yesterday, December 8th: How would you like to feel over the next month? What can you do to make that happen?)
Answer: So, I’m going to skip over the question I missed yesterday (just A LOT going on right now, spinning my head in lots of different directions) and focus on today’s question. This is definitely a legacy question, one that I’ve been thinking about a lot for the past couple of weeks as I get ready for our next Life Design Catalyst Training starting on Monday. I would want my family and friends to think of me as someone who really inspired them to be their best selves and serve others profoundly. I want to be known as one of the few people that served them well, that I gave them my best in almost every instance when called upon. To know that I would bend over backwards to support my family and my tribe. That I lived with a deep commitment to my personal core values, never wavering to anyone or anything. I’ve been thinking about this because I’ve been reading/listening to a few Brian Johnson’s Philosopher’s Notes; one of the thoughts he shares in his wisdom is “remember death” – so much so that he carrier a coin that says, “Momento Mori,” which means, “Remember Death.” We only have this one precious life, so whatever I can do to live each day and each moment like my last. I just closed my eyes and thought, what would I do if I only had one more day to live? Or one week? Or one month? Or one year? How would I spend my time? What’s the “work” that I’d like to be doing? How do I want to spend my time? And with whom? Then, it takes me back to the thought, what do I have to do RIGHT NOW now to something that matters to me? Am I doing work that resonates with my soul? Am I in relationships that resonate with my soul? Am I engaged in activities that resonate with my soul? And if not, why not? And I thought about it this morning after an interview this morning for a position, knowing that it’s something that it wasn’t something that sounded like it could resonate with my soul. Which brought me right back to Life Design Catalyst work. This morning, I did three more Brian Johnson PN notes; and now, I’m working on the Life Design Catalyst Training Manual. And connected with a couple of friends about the Training. And just thinking about those things brings a smile to my face. So I SOMEHOW have to find a way to create this “place” (a Life Design Catalyst Studio), that would allow me and the other Catalyst to do this work ALL THE TIME! That’s what brings me joy (vs happiness) and is aligned me being my best self and serving others profoundly. Now that makes my heart and soul sing!
