In Mark Albion's book, True to Yourself: Leading A Values-Based Business, he asks a simple, but powerful, question:
"When people hear your name, can they say immediately what you stand for?"
I wonder. Am I as "transparent" to people I know and love as I think I am? Can they say immediately what I stand for? Best ask them!
Albion's question cuts sharply to reveal our core values-- asking us to look closely at how we're living our life. You may want to ask yourself and your loved ones his question (as I am) to clarify the values you want to pass on in your ethical will or personal legacy letters.
