Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

13th April 2015
“Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.” - Goethe

How often do you take the time to reflect and consider the few things in your life that truly matter the most to you, and perhaps more importantly, how often do you ensure that this is where you place most of your conscious time and effort?

In his best-selling book, First Things First, Stephen Covey states that there are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfilment. If these basic needs aren’t met we feel empty and incomplete.

The essence of these needs can be captured in the phrase, “to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy.”

The need to live is our physical need for such things as food, clothing, shelter, economic well-being and health. The need to love is our social need to relate to other people, to belong, to love and to be loved. The need to learn is our mental need to develop and grow. And the need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence and contribution.
