Heroes of legend?
History doesn’t stand still. The way we view the past depends on what’s happening in the present. Just look at how statues of Confederate ‘heroes’ in the South of the USA have been taken down recently, as present day context makes them less appealing than they were to some in the past.
It got me thinking about how your actions today might not always be remembered in the same way as they’re viewed today.
So don’t get too caught up in thoughts about your 'legacy’ as you make your way through your life. After all you can’t control what other people think about you today – let alone in 200 years from now. Maybe even the achievements of Elon Musk and Steve Jobs might be reappraised in centuries to come.
All the better reason to live for the moment.
