Pair off with a member you don't know and spend 10 minutes speaking and listening to each other, and telling each other's story to the group. 1:00 - 1:55: Presentation/Discussion: Our last few LINKUPS have focused on Healthy Aging and G-d. Two huge topics.. At both we talked about how to be the best we can be.. The topic for our next LINKUP, Thursday, July 18th, Personal Legacy, continues the theme.. Over my years in practice I regularly asked my patients to create an infinitely update-able document called My Personal Legacy. The document is a description of what each of us want to be remembered for. What we want people who have known us to say about us. What we strive to be. How we act in our lives. I have written a list of VALUES for you to read. It is at the end of this description.. Think about them and then, choose 5 that resonate with you. Bring that list with you to our next LINKUP. We will go around the table and discuss the hows, whats, and whys, for each of us. Let's see what we can do to help each other chart a healthy and meaningful journey for the rest of our days.. And, after the LINKUP, we can each create our own version of My Personal Legacy and use it to chart our futures and to keep us on track. It's a Personal Road Map.. Core Values List Below is a list of core values. This list is not exhaustive, but it will give you an idea of some common core values (also called personal values). My recommendation is to select less than five core values to focus on—if everything is a core value, then nothing is really a priority. Core Values List: Authenticity Achievement Adventure Authority Autonomy Balance Beauty Boldness Compassion Challenge Citizenship Community Competency Contribution Creativity Curiosity Determination Fairness Faith Fame Friendships Fun Growth Happiness Honesty Humor Influence Inner Harmony Justice Kindness Knowledge Leadership Learning Love Loyalty Meaningful Work Openness Optimism Peace Pleasure Poise Popularity Recognition Religion Reputation Respect Responsibility Security Self-Respect Service Spirituality Stability Success Status Trustworthiness Wealth Wisdom Note: many of the personal values listed above came from a list compiled by James Clear. I use my core values to create my Annual Personal Legacy Update. Writing these reports is a yearly ritual that forces me to think about how I am living out my core values in real life. 1:55 - : Future plans, formal meeting close, and networking for as long as you want...
