Communicating A Lasting Legacy

The Coates Perspective for March 8, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
Is Your Life Communicating a Lasting Legacy?
 
Communication by a leader is more than using words. We also communicate with our lives. How we live is just as important as what we say.

Author Grenville Kleiser underscores this premise when he writes, “Your life is like a book. The title page is your name, the preface your introduction to the world. The pages are a daily record of your efforts, trials, pleasures, discouragements, and achievements. Day by day your thoughts and acts are being inscribed in your book of life. Hour by hour, the record is being made that must stand for all time. Once the word finis must be written, let it then be said of your book that it is a record of noble purpose, generous service, and work well-done.”

So here is the take-a-way for the leader who desires to build a life that communicates a life worth emulating. How is it done? What does a leader have to do in order to communicate a lasting legacy of noble purpose, generous service, and work well done? Here are a few suggestions:

1.     A life committed to a high calling communicates doing whatever is required to stay on target and pursue the things that really matter.

2.     A life committed to serving others communicates that you really care.

3.     A life committed to excellence communicates that you highly value what you do.
 
You’ve read my perspective. Now, I’d love to hear yours. What are you thinking? How are communicating a lasting legacy?
