Just had a birthday & I was thinking about “what will be my legacy” – if anything.
I have my 2 lovely daughters in their 20’s – one in San Diego studying Law, other in Auckland doing medicine. Yes, thank goodness they take after their mother in looks & brains. When will they finishing studying so I can save some $? Still attached at the wallet but would not be if they were bumming around. Very proud of them but is there more?
Unlike Rod Drury don’t have $1.1b after cashing in $95m last year to do some philanthropic works. So not going to be on a grand scale or highly visible.
Eulogies often say things like – will never be forgotten. Frankly that is bollocks. Unless you are a major historical figure we will all be forgotten in a hundred years, when those that have met us are dead.
So I am thinking that while people that have met me are still alive they will think:
- I tried to help people have a better life by connecting great people up
- I did the right thing even if difficult
- Treated people fairly & honestly
- Enjoyed a laugh & the odd vino
- Easy to work with
- Added some value to their lives.
