I found that every day I had an opportunity to make a small difference.
I could have coached someone better, I could have listened better, I could have been more positive toward people, I could have said "Thank you" more often, I could have...
The list just went on and on.. Each day provides us with countless chances to make a difference. The chance might come in a private conversation, over the dinner table with our families, when we're speaking to someone, or even in the way we listen. Each of these moments serves up the prospect of contributing to a lasting legacy.
Legacies aren't the result of wishful thinking. They're the result of determined doing. The legacy you leave is the life you lead. We lead our lives daily. We leave our legacy daily. The people you see, the decisions you make, the actions you take - they are what tell your story. It's the sum of everything you do that matters, not one large bequest at the end of your journey. You just never know whose life you might touch. You just never know what change you might initiate and what impact you might have. You just never know when that critical moment might come. What you do know is that you can make a difference. James M Kouzes.
We can all leave this world just a little bit better than we found it.
