What's Your Impact?

Tiny fingers B&WWe all get about 80 years on this earth, maybe 100 if we're really lucky.

Time is slipping away even as you read these words and you can't have it back, ever.

With time escaping quickly, how are you making an impact?

Who are you affecting with your life?

Will others look back at what you've done and be inspired by it?

How will your story read when you're gone? Will it be a technical manual or a page turner thriller?

Choose to make an impact. Do worthwhile things that will last and echo into the future generations.

Write a great story with your life.

Have an impact.
