How Do You Want To Be Remembered?



People want to be remembered as kind and generous after they die, not wealthy and powerful. There's been a trend of high-profile billionaires promising to give away a large chunk of their fortune, eventually and this might be why.

Someone conducted a survey on how people would like to be remembered after they pass away and 43% of people want to be remembered as a "good person."
Other popular responses were: kind, caring, loyal, helpful, a good listener, loving, happy, a good spouse, being true to yourself, a good parent, easy-going, hardworking, funny and generous.

The list did not include things some people might like being known as while they're alive: wealthy, powerful, famous, ruthless, and important.

In the survey, 65% of people said they believe it's important to leave behind a positive legacy. And 46% say they'll give a small percentage to charity in their will.

Just to be remembered for what I did, what I stood for; that I was a real person, not perfect but real..

My oldest daughter gave me a Father's Day card this year with a message that read "To a dad who understood that great parenting lies somewhere between "'don't do that' and 'oh, what the hell'". I'd like to paraphrase that to 'to a friend who understood that being a great friend lies somewhere between don't do that and oh, what the hell. And as an addendum include "So sophisticated, just a little crazy".

Good question.
It's a Q that everyone has to ask themselves. And hopefully, when that flash of light blinds us for that LAST split second, we'll have lived up to our intent.

What does it matter how I will be remembered when I'm gone, it won't make any difference to me then.

Please don't let me be misunderstood.

It would be great if I was just remembered after my passing and, if remembered, in a good, quirky way that raises a smile.

For me I don't know yet as I really haven't given much thought to this question. I would hope that I am remembered a caring and loving person.

I hope your enjoying being back at work, and I hope you enjoy your weekend..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Finding and knowing someone who is {B] Real seems to be getting more difficult.

I love the message in your Father's Day card! Your daughter obviously enjoyed and benefited from your parenting style . And I agree, we all should have a dab of crazy in us.

And ideally one with no regrets.

If others are kindler/gentler/productive souls for having known you, the world will be a better place.

No doubt there are many who believe that it will and try to do so. Leaving a legacy isn't necessarily tied to $$$$.

I know it's a [B} Big question and one that requires introspection.
Work has been an adjustment and overall, people have been terrific. Next week, I switch to 3 days and that will give me more time to recover!

My favorite line regarding parenting - "The challenge in parenting is how to channel the energy without breaking the spirit"

I can understand why you like that one! Those who are parents can certainly identify with it!
