I have have been reflecting on one of my PPNs. Legacy to be specific. I desire to build a legacy in my life using my teachings, mentorship and interactions with my children to guide their lives to greatness. In my loving encounters with others filling it with joy, leaving behind a personal mark with responsible and enlightened designs which I create for myself or for my clients. These desires have led me to create a list of core values that underpin this legacy. I feel this will be an organic process much like creating our DMPs. I want to be clear with the words I use and why. I want to be ale to truly apply them and not be hypocritical or contradictory in the daily living of the core values. I have been looking at some recent core value statements and look forward to the process. Some of the core values I am beginning with are below.
