Take a few minutes after work today to sit quietly in a comfortable space. Grab a notepad and a pencil, and begin to imagine that today is your last day at your job.
Jot down a few of your proudest moments and consider how you’d like people to remember you. Think back to a time in the past when someone you care about praised you. What did he or she say about you?
Now take those examples and come up with a few sentences that coworkers will say about you when you’re gone. Think about your legacy as well. If someone is stepping up to fill your shoes at the company, how will they look at the work you've done and the resources you've left them?
The following memo was sent by BetterUp co-founder Eddie Medina to our entire company shortly before our launch. Our goal in sharing it is to show the passion we have for our work and why we are excited to spread the idea of loving your work.
