Coaching Life Quotes on Being Remembered

I remember my grandfather asking at one point in my life "what do you want to be remembered for". My answer was a childish I don't know. Not many of us could answer that question, even at our current age. When I started my consulting practice, I spent hours designing and refining the concepts and my business plan. After a few years, I had another consultant ask me "how many times have you re-invented yourself". It was another way of asking, "What do you want to be remembered for"?

The question makes us stretch our possibilities, and take an inventory of the things that truly matter in life, those things that we bring to the table that indeed will make us memorable in another's eyes. Some are destined for greatness, while others only float by in a sea of mediocrity. The choice we make is ultimately up to each of us. Answer the question at your own risk.

“We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today. I don't think it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great. If you're hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.”- Art Buckwald

"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."- Anonymous
