I am almost embarrassed to admit how much I love listening to Andy Stanley. I believe he is a very wise man, and I have learned a great deal from him. This morning as I drove to work before the rest of the world even finished REM sleep I was listening to some of his audio on leadership. He asked a powerful question that I want to pass on to you.
Andy said that before you decide what you want to DO with your life you should decide WHO you want to be. And he borrows an excercise from Stephen Covey to help you with it. Simply find time today to write out what you would like to be said at your funeral. I would love for some of you to leave a couple of things you would like to be said at your funeral in the comment boxes below. And I want to wait until to tomorrow to say anything else about this assignment, because I don't want to influence what you write down. So go for it, what do you want to be said about you at your funeral?
