What legacy will you leave?

"Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now take what’s left and live it properly." - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 7.56

When your time on earth is done, who will remember you? How will you be remembered? What will you be remembered for? 

Too often we treat legacy like a social media profile, something that can be contrived and crafted. If you have means, you might believe legacy is something you can save up or set aside funds for, a commodity that can be bought through a trust or donation.

But in the end, your legacy is based solely on who you are, how you are, and what you do right now.

Live now. Do all you can now. Be the best you that you can be now. Share all you that you can now.

That's the best way to confront mortality, "live" beyond the grave and leave a legacy worth remembering.

These thoughts on legacy are influenced by a conversation I had with my friend Chris Gill, Emeritus Professor of Ancient Thought at Exeter University.
