No One Will Remember You

NOTE: There are those that learn best through the good/bad examples of others. There are those who learn only by doing it themselves. Here’s a third way to learn. It’s called a thought exercise. You deliberately focus on a thought and concentrate on your response to it. How does it make you feel? Is it true? Can you change it? Does it align with your life?

Here is one of my favorites.

No one will remember you.

For a few years some will remember the work you did. For a couple more they’ll remember how you made them feel. At best, in a couple decades, your name shows up on a list of past presidents or in obscure trivia.

But they won’t remember you. And in 100 years everyone you see today will have died.

So what are you holding back on?

What is keeping your internal throttle in idle?

Who are you spending time with?

What have you put off until the “right time”?
