Legacy is about people, not projects

Legacy is about people, not projects

Dear friend, welcome to the final “Sam Says” podcast episode and love note in this current format. It’s been my absolute joy and privilege to share these love notes for the last 3.5 years and, over 800 love notes later, I’m feeling nudged to change things a little.

I’m still sitting with Sam to hear the specifics of what that’s going to look like but the one piece I do know is it’s going to continue to involve audio, probably weekly rather than daily, at least while we get things established.

(You don’t need to do anything in order to enjoy whatever comes “next”, it’ll be shared here via the blog and direct to your inbox like you’ve been enjoying thus far.)

Thank you so much for journeying with me over these days, weeks, months and years. I’m full of anticipation for what’s next!

With all of that said, here’s today’s love note …

Your legacy isn’t about projects, it’s about people. Legacy is always about people because people are my priority, relationship is what I’m really focussed on. And so your legacy is every person you’ve impacted in both seen and unseen ways.

Yes, there will be specifics to how the peopling will play out but don’t worry about the specifics. I can show the specifics very easily when we keep doing life together like this. When I know that I have your heart and ear, there is nothing to stop me whispering specifics.

But specifics are always centred around people, relationships, and so that is ultimately your legacy: doing life with me, all in, loving and living with joy, being who I created you to be unapologetically, and loving others into a closer relationship with me in the process. Being who I created you to be, in relationship with me - Youier! That is your legacy!

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” Psalm 28:7 NIV

Journal prompt: Are there any specifics you want to share with me today?
