How do we create a Legacy that is significant?

This week we are in a brand new series called, "Painting our Legacy". In five strokes, we are discovering  practical ways to paint our legacy one day at a time.

The 5 Strokes to paint a significant legacy

  1. Recognize the innate connection between your daily lives and your legacy

  2. Discover the legacy you would like to paint

  3. Be aware of the legacy you are currently painting

  4. Forge new colors to create the legacy you have always dreamt about

  5. -


Some of us have been using the same colors for too long. What was once new and excited has turned into dull and boring. 

I watched a documentary months ago on my favorite musical collective: Switchfoot. Jon Forman explained the reason behind their name:

To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It’s about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music.
— Jon Forman

I'm guessing you need a change in your life, a shift, a movement of some short. It might be something big like rescheduling your weekly schedule or severing unhealthy relationships or it could be something small like starting the habit of journaling or spending more time with the people you love. Whatever it is, go back to the workshop and get new colors. As you switch your feet at some point and start painting with new colors, I hope your daily decisions can change to reflect the legacy you want to paint.

What new colors do you need to use in order to paint your legacy?
