“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” Chuck Palahniuk – Diary

You will not live forever.

But – you can create something that will.

What is it that you will create that will last forever?

Finding that thing for you – and making it happen – is a worthy ideal – something worth dedicating a life to creating.

The following are a few ideas of possibilities that will last forever to spur your thinking:

 – values that live forever in a family

 – a safer world

 – the habit of creating memories that last a lifetime that will be passed on through generations

 – a more accepting world

 – the story of your life – written down for future generations to know who you were and what you valued

 – a small (or large) family foundation or money given to a larger foundation that will last forever

 – a family retreat (a place)

 – a more joyful world

 – every person that you care about knows that they are loved

 – children who will make their positive impact on the world

 – a more generous world

 – an educational fund for your heirs

You will not live forever.

What is YOUR idea for creating something that will?
