Finally the issue of doing “it” has to rest solely at the feet of eternity. Whether by divine presence or by the unbiased passing of time, we are all judged. Our “works” (or “its”) in this world will be judged, brought to light, examined.
Do they pass the test of time? Are they regarded as useful? Does our story inspire future generations? Or, is our desire to leave a legacy actually part of the problem? Can we write the script for our examiners? What is ours to manage?
One concerned only about leaving the best legacy will forget the harrowing reality of his or her own limitations. We can’t write whatever story we want. We have to write our story. We have to live our life. We have to be in our context.
