Newbie’s Legacy

I obsessed over my legacy,

before I even started working.

I wanted to write my obituary,

before I even started living.

I wanted to be known,

before I even knew myself.

I needed to matter,

before I even knew what mattered.

I needed to build a brand,

before I built a person.

It’s funny when you wonder so much about who you’re gonna be, you simply become somebody who “was really gonna be somebody one day.”

A legacy is not planned, built, or manufactured.

A legacy is made up of thousands of little things you did to impact just one person or issue.

Give your focus to one starfish at a time, and you won’t worry about your legacy so much.
