Am attending a two day Independence intensive with Rich Litvin and Steve Chandler and we are asked to play the deathbed game by answering two questions:
What’s my legacy? What contribution do I want to make in the world?
We get a 5 min reflection time, to ponder these questions and our own mortality. Meanwhile Allison Crow is the visual recorder at the event and she’s capturing the deathbed game this way:
I pick up my phone and start to write an email to myself. My mind immediately wanders towards the Swedish movement the school spring, aka #skolvåren, that I am one of the initiators of, and which for me is a conduit for one of the great passions of my life: the set goal I have to change school systems globally by 2020.
But what lies behind that, what’s the passion driving me? Why do I want to do this?
Well, in short because I see so much wasted and untapped potential just withering and shrivelling away, going unused, perishing. And that’s to the detriment of us all, I tell you. We have challenges today and tomorrow that require something else from humanity than what created the problems now challenging us. And to paraphrase Albert Einstein, you cannot solve a problem from within the same state of mind that created it in the first place.
So, I want more of us (all of us!) to level up. To climb up the ladder of consciousness, to a higher level. That’s what I see is in store for us, for humanity. We have but one way forward if we want to remain here on Earth and that is to level up. There is no doubt in my mind on that one.
I want a world inhabited by people who are consciously creating the world, rather than just reacting to what happens. And that’s why I want to change school systems on a global scale – because in today’s modern society school has a HUGE impact on all of out lives. So we need to make sure it’s an impact for the better, for the good of humanity, for the lives of the born and the unborn.
In short, that’s my contribution to the world.
What’s your legacy?
