Every Facebook status, blog post, online article, instagram photo, tweet, pin, Youtube video is a log of our lives. Each and every moment of our lives is being recorded in some manner, and there is the possibility for the first time to virtually ensure total and complete accuracy in historical documents. Some would say that hackers could manipulate the data, but even that instant is being logged into a system that can be accessed remotely at any given time.
We spend our lives on the internet, sharing our thoughts and our stories, but we are also moving our careers to the internet cloud of the world. We are transitioning into a digital age where everything important is somehow linked to the internet and electronics. We are leaving a legacy, here and now, creating personas that we want to be remembered by when we transition from the physical world. We must be conscious of who we portray ourselves to be and how we carry ourselves in our day to day lives, now more than ever.
Can you imagine someone, somewhere, a million years from now, watching a historical YouTube clip of your most recent video? Can you imagine someone doing historical research and picking up your latest blog? Just contemplate the fact that in the distant future, someone will log in to a historical archive and pull up your most recent photo!
This week’s Affirmative Action is infused with an opportunity to travel into the future and see what it would be like to look back in time on today. This exercise will arouse your consciousness and elicit a desire to be more aware of your thoughts, wills, and actions.
What do you want your legacy to be?
