Remember Me

Posted by Tom Locke on July 2nd, 2014 filed in Education, General, Life, Sports ... All Sorts

I just received a newsletter from Lee Silber, an author/trainer/consultant in the San Diego area who I have shared the odd idea, thought and inspiration over the years. I have also enjoyed using some of his “consulting creations” in assisting people in developing their competitive edge.

Triggered by the recent death of baseball legend, Tony Gwynn, Lee’s piece, “Remember Me” really resonated with me.

Per Lee, that ” … headline is not a question, it’s a statement. .. At his [Tony’s] memorial service everyone said the same thing, he was an amazing person. Most didn’t even mention his baseball accomplishments (which were astounding) but instead focused on the man himself. He made a mark on the game of baseball, but more importantly, on the people he met.”

With the above as a backdrop, Lee goes on to challenge his readers as to: What will their legacy be?  How will they be remembered?  What will people say about them?  Or, what would they like people to say about them?

I know I think about these questions from time to time.  As a result, I try to spend a little time each day using online (social media and e-mail) and offline (personal interactions and snail mail) to make someone’s day. How about you?  Why not join me?
