Retiring I’m Retiring How Do I Leave a Legacy? You have completed what you came to do. Maybe it was a short-term goal that gives you great satisfaction. Maybe it was your life’s work. Now it’s time to celebrate and pass the baton. Here are some ways to transition out of the movement. Develop the next generation of leaders. Instead of being on the front line, coach or mentor emerging advocates. Offer webinars or write blogs on your “lessons learned.” Write about your journey. Maybe it’s something only you read. Maybe it becomes your memoir. Conduct a ritual to acknowledge the transition. A candle-lighting reflection and meditation. Toss flowers into the stream with each positive memory. Write a poem. Have a party. If no one is stepping up to hold one for you, host it yourself. Celebrate the milestones and the people who helped you along the way.
