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.
