Every life has a beginning date and an ending date. These dates are almost always listed on a grave stone in the form:
August 14th, 1908 - January 22nd, 1986
Looking at a grave stone doesn't tell you much about a person. Everything accomplished by a person can be found in that little "dash" nestled between the dates.
When your end date arrives, what will your dash mean?
How did you live your life?
What will someone say in an obituary or eulogy?
I met a very wise man who has two question marks on his business card. When asked what they are there for, he said, "The first questions everyone needs to ask themselves is, 'What happens when you die?' The second question, 'Knowing the answer to the first question, how would you change the way you live your life?'"
When your day of reckoning arrives, how will you be remembered? What will people say about you? What will you provide them to fill in your dash?
