My Life Plan: How I Want to Be Remembered

Researching to write a blog led me to many great blogs.  There are so many great ones out there!

One that I stumbled upon was that of Michael Hyatt and his free Life Plan e-book.  After reading just a page or 2, I decided to write out a Life Plan, and blog my way through the process.

He suggests starting with the end.  Envisioning what you want to be remembered for how you want to be remembered. I wrote the first part and realized this is the wrong question!

I have no idea what I want to be remembered for doing – I hope to do a lot of things. And I definitely DON’T want to be remembered for doing some things. I want to be remember for HOW I did things.

David, as in David and Goliath, isn’t remembered countless generations later for just killing Goliath, but for How he killed him – a rock and a sling, and faith in a Mighty and All-Powerful God!

I think in general, that about sums it up for me.  I want to be remembered as somebody who followed God obediently into ‘something new’, with faith in a Mighty and All-Powerful God. And I want others to follow too.

I want to learn, grow, and do the things that God designed me to do. I’m still not exactly sure what that is in the practical day-to-day sense.  But I know that God is leading me into ‘something new’.  I know I’m supposed to be sharing the things He is teaching me as I’m seeking wisdom.

It’s a scary thing.  There’s so much to learn in blogging – and I’m a perfectionist who doesn’t want to make any mistakes.  But I will, so please bare with me.

I’ve got no idea where this journey is going to lead me, or you my readers. But I’ll hope you’ll follow along with me here.  Leave a comment and tell me – how do you want to be remembered.
