Are You Living For Now or to be Remembered?
Are you living for now or to be remembered?
I had no intention of writhing this today but I read a post from John Knotts that asked the question, “What role are you playing in your company, career, industry, or hobby?” (You can read it here https://lnkd.in/gfEJw5WB)
In this post he said, “Honestly, what do you want to be remembered for?” So I started to think about that.
When it comes to life, it is important to ask yourself, are you living for now or to be remembered?
This is an age-old question that has been asked by people of all ages and walks of life. We find that the answer varies depending on who you ask, but it is important to consider the implications of each answer.
Living for now implies that you are focused on living your life in the present. This could mean taking risks and experiencing new things, or simply cherishing the everyday moments.
Having this mindset is often associated with “living life to the fullest” and prioritizing experiences over material possessions. You may not be remembered for the risks you take or the moments you cherish, but you will be remembered for the impact you have on the present.
Now on the other hand, living to be remembered means that you are focused on the future. This could mean setting goals, seeking out opportunities, and striving to achieve something meaningful.
Living to be remembered requires hard work, dedication, and a strong sense of purpose. It is often associated with leaving a legacy and making a lasting impression on the world.
At the end of the day, the decision as to which way you want to live is a personal one. It is important to consider what will bring you the most happiness and fulfillment in life, and to strive for that.
When you choose, make sure it is something that you are passionate about and something that will make the world a better place.
Only then, can you truly live a life that is worth remembering.
