Think about your character and legacy. Look out there, beyond your meetings, beyond your month's to-do's and all the things you have to do. Ask yourself this simple question, "How do I want those whom I love and serve to remember me?"
It's important to take a step back because when you're constantly juggling and feel depleted, because you're not thinking about the future. You're just trying to survive and get through today. You start to lose your clear intention for how you want to show up with your family and teams. Your executive presence suffers. The quality of your interactions suffers.
Can you relate?
Let me tell you, its not about having more time. Because we all know there's never enough of it.
It is about imagining your interactions with people, and asking yourself why they love and respect you. How would they describe their interactions with you? Make a list and then choose to demonstrate those qualities each day. Be intentional with how you show up.
What qualities do you want to be remembered for? How do you want people to describe you? Write it down.
Again, approach your interactions, your time with people, as an opportunity to demonstrate these qualities. Challenge yourself to be that person now.
Because having clear and compelling intentions will not only bring life back into your relationships, they will also give your interactions meaning, and create the reputation and legacy you're wanting for yourself.
