    Top Posts of 2011 Number 3 – Reflect More, Risk More, Leave A Legacy – Start Blogging (A Guest Post by Jason Fountain)

    As I mentioned last week, my plan is to provide links to the top Stretched posts from 2011 over the next couple of weeks.  This provides an excellent opportunity for me to take a small break during the holidays, and it also provides an incredible opportunity for you to catch up on things you may have missed over the past year.  I hope you’ll hop on over to the original post, so you can read the entire post and add your comments to the existing comments string.

    The 3rd most popular Stretched post from 2011 was a guest post by my friend Jason Fountain.  The post is titled Reflect More, Risk More, Leave A Legacy – Start Blogging.  Here’s an excerpt to get you going:

    Reflect More, Risk More, Leave A Legacy – Start Blogging

    John Maxwell relates a story shared by sociologist Anthony Campolo.  Campolo tells about a group of 50 people over the age of 90 years old who were asked one question: If you could live your life over again, what would you do differently?

    The question was open-ended and the people’s answers were varied. However, three ideas consistently emerged.

    1. If I had it to do over again, I would reflect more. 
    2. If I had it to do over again, I would risk more. 
    3. If I had it to do over again, I would do more things that would live on after I am dead.

    I want to share with you an idea that can help you begin to accomplish all three of these goals TODAY.

    To read the rest of this post, head on over to the original Reflect More, Risk More, Leave A Legacy – Start Blogging post.
