One is about your legacy, the other is about what’s in front of you.
One is about the impact trail you deliberately blaze and leave behind, the other about the income trail you haphazardly piece together.
One is about progressive, conscious building within a well defined area of interest, the other is about bouncing to wherever the next perceived opportunity lies without regard to growth and consistency.
One is about being mindful, present and proactive, the other is about being disconnected, frenetic and reactive.
One is about peace, power and passion, the other is about searching, yearning and hoping.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a writer, a painter, a blogger, a lawyer or an executive. We all have within us the opportunity and the ability to create a profound body of work, a legacy.
There is, no doubt, a time for chaos and exploration.
In fact, it nearly always proceeds and informs a period of greater, more focused building. And, it’s not unusual for it to occasionally return as you question your current path. But, understanding and, to the extent possible, directing that chaos toward a resolution is critical, even if it means letting go of paths and options in order to create the space, focus and intention to drive forward with one. Because, with rare exception…
For greatness to emerge, options must narrow…and chaos must die.
Powerful legacies rarely if ever come in the form of scattershot, piecemeal efforts…cornucopias of chaos…no matter how fun, windswept or purposeful they seem when we’re adrift within them.
So, my question is…does this make sense to you?
And, more importantly, are your building or floating and why?
