Starting the last section of the book, Leaving Boldly. We get right into it with a chapter on how things here on earth are fleeting.
For what would you like to be remembered? How are you contributing to this goal right now? How long will this legacy last?
I want to be remember for the things I created. For the things that wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t been here. That includes my kids. It includes the thought and beliefs of others I’ve influenced. Hopefully, it includes the films I’ve made.
For the most part these things might last a century. The people are eternal.
Think about the possessions you will leave behind one day. Who will inherit them? Remember, we don’t really own anything. We’re just stewards of what God has given us.
You know I don’t have that much in the way of possessions that won’t be worthless by the end of my life. My kids will get my house and a little savings. The rights to what I create will go to someone, or maybe I’ll release them into the public domain at my death.
