Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you

Most people want to be respected and remembered long after they have left their organization. The questions are; What will be your legacy? Will it be something that will be long remembered or short-lived? Do you want to be remembered as a “problem employee” by your organization or as a “valuable associates”?
Every good employee would like to leave a legacy of some kind, knowing fully well that immortality is to live your life doing good things and leaving your mark behind. One needs to work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express not to impress. You don’t strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt.
The greatest legacy we can leave when we quit an organization is integrity and honesty of purpose. You need to think about your legacy because you’re writing it every day. Instead of shine so others can see you, it is better to shine so that through you others can see.
The fact is, after you your legacy will become your identity. So live your life in such a way that your good deeds may become your legacy. That will make you after your death.
Your story is the greatest legacy that you will leave to your friends. It’s the longest – lasting legacy you will leave to your heirs.
