In a break from my traditional posts related to cycling, running, triathlons, or BEEF, today's post is about your legacy: what do you want to be remembered for? This past weekend I had the opportunity to pose that question to a gathering of meat industry leaders at the Meat Industry Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Ceremony and Dinner (OK, so it is somewhat related to BEEF).
As we honored the new inductees for their work in improving meat safety, animal care and raising, safe, wholesome and nutritious meat products for consumers around the world, I wanted to challenge the audience to think about what they will be remembered for or, more important, what they want to be remembered for?
I know 16 minutes is a lifetime in this 140-characters-or-less world we live in but I hope you will take time to listen. Whether you are involved in the meat industry or not I think it will cause you to consider your life's legacy.
