Here’s the true touchstone of whether you are really making an impact or just making noise.
In ancient times, a touchstone was a a black stone used to test the purity of gold and silver by rubbing the metal on the touchstone and checking the color of the streak that was left by the metal.
In other words, it was a comparison that checked whether what you were producing was of real value.
I encourage the people I mentor and coach to develop touchstones to test their goals.
This is a good time to check yourself.
And here is the touchstone …
Will Anyone Notice When You’re Gone?
I’ve been to a lot of funerals and maybe you have too.
The sad truth is that many people are mourned for a week and mostly forgotten.
But some are missed beyond measure.
Go ahead and rub yourself on the touchstone and see what color comes up.
All the best,
