People remember us for our deeds

People don't remember us for what we do for ourselves-for the size of our bank account, the car we drove or how big our house was. They remember us for what we have done for them. Leadership, after all, is a relationship, and the quality of that relationship determines how effective we are and how we are remembered. When we talk about legacy, people often think about what they are bequeathing to others, in terms of material goods. But, in fact, the legacy you leave is the life you lead: it's what you are doing right now that determines how you will be remembered.
