Why Legacy? Step 2

Continuing our thoughts around legacy and the steps to building an effective legacy strategy.

Step 2.  Discover your passion.  You hear this stated all the time.  "Live your passion."  Am I the only person who struggled knowing what my passion is?  I hope not.  But I'm not known for my perceptive abilities.  I think what led me to understanding that I am passionate about community, I am passionate about supporting others, I am passionate about educating people around agriculture.  I learned this by doing an audit of my time.  When I looked back over the last 12 months, I tried to record where I spent my free time.  That included what I read, books, blogs.  That included the civic groups I supported.  That included where I donated money.

All of these elements helped me to realize I was subconsciously writing my passion and didn't know it.

When you write down the elements of your passion, does it feel good?  For those of you who are a tad more on the realistic, logical side, and don't understand the statement "feel good," ask someone who knows you.  Ask them if that fits you.  Get another perspective.
