“It’s not about an opening weekend. It’s about a career, building a set of films you’re proud of.”
– George Clooney, actor
If you were to win an award for lifetime achievement, what would the highlight reel contain before they introduced you?
In today’s society, we seem enthralled with one hit wonders in many areas of life. We watch the hottest YouTube clips or we listen to the catchiest songs of the day. We focus on subjects that grab the headlines on the nightly news or even in our RSS feeds.
Clooney is suggesting we consider our enduring legacy as the effort and accomplishment over time that demonstrates staying power and some permanence.
What else do you want or need to accomplish in the year ahead to be worthy of your own lifetime achievement award?
