A Legacy of Inspiration

Waking up this morning to hear the sad passing of Australian legend, Richie Benaud. A cricketer, commentator and gentleman nonpareil. Above all an inspiration to generations of sports fans.

In business as in sport or life, there are many leaders, who are satisfied by acquiring great financial success and acclaim through their thoughts, words and deeds. There are a smaller number, who pretend to or aspire to leave a legacy of inspiration for those who follow in their footsteps. There is an even more rarefied space  with those leaders, who actually achieve that goal. Why sell yourself short and not shoot for that elevated status in your own career? After all a name on a building is just that a symbolic gesture but a wave of successors, who reference you as their inspiration is a meaningful legacy.
