We build a deeper, wider reservoir of energy to draw on throughout the day, and have greater mental resources that we can use to do good work and live a meaningful life.
Make It Count: Ensuring When Life Ends Your Legacy Lives on Hunter Ballew
Make It Count occurred after a serious and unpleasant incident. Hunter chased his dreams, moving from serving in the US Marine Corps for six years, to working as a full-time Firefighter and EMT, to exploring entrepreneurship. He was thinking about transferring from the fire department to pursue his passion for owning a business when it happened – his friend and former colleague at the fire department, Jordan, died in a tragic accident in auto. The incident deeply moved Hunter when he realized that Jordan, who had made such a mark on the lives of those who knew him, would not come close to doing so. His life ended unexpectedly at the young age of 30, and he ran out of time – no more memories made with his wife and newborn daughter, no more time with his family and friends, there is no chance for his dreams to come true. That’s when Hunter decided to put into practice one of the overriding principles he teaches in his new book: help others realize the importance of making the most of the time they’ve been given and building a legacy that lasts.
