Success. Achievement. Fame and fortune.
Viral videos and one-hit wonders. Your fifteen minutes of fame.
We all leave a legacy behind, but it doesn't have to be a parade of ego.
To leave a legacy of kindness, compassion and generosity, you only need to follow one bit of advice:
Honestly care for others.
Dedicate all your actions to helping others, alleviating their suffering. Take a moment to build a personal connection, share your time with those who need it. Give gifts that matter. Leave your workplace, your community and your world better than you found it.
That is a legacy that lasts.
