Understanding the Ties Between Leadership and Legacy

Remember: You don’t get to edit your legacy

I recently made a trip to Colorado to see my children and grandchildren and meet my great grandson for the first time. The first night I was there, we went to my daughter’s home for dinner. After we finished eating, she asked me to tell several of our family stories. As I did, she recorded them so that my great grandson, Everette, and others would be able to hear them when they wanted.

My father said, “you’re alive as long as they tell stories about you.” There I was telling stories about him, my mother, my grandparents, my aunts, uncles and cousins. I even slipped one in about my great-great grandfather.

Whether you’re a mother or a father or a leader, your most important legacy is the stories.
