I want to be remembered for having lived a simple life and for having been authentic with the people that were in my life…I don’t feel like I am really answering your question…

Well when people think back a hundred years from now about who you were…

…Ah, a Simple guy. “Oh that Johannes! He sure was a simple guy! So simple…”

No, I just want to be remembered as someone who was simple and authentic and as someone who followed his heart and was truthful to himself.

It’s really interesting because I am remembering a conversation that Auguste and I had where we decided that the key to leaving people inspired is:

Elegance and authenticity . Keep it simple. Tell the truth.

I think you just called yourself elegant:

Well, elegant? I guess I’ll take that. I don’t know if I’d directly say “I’m so elegnat” but if you breakdown simple like that than I would, after all, like to be remebered as just “a simple” guy.

Grammatically Incorrect

Dana @ 3:37 AM | Filed under: Podcast

Shadenfreude is a German word used to describe the act of taking pleasure in the pain or misfortune of another. It is derived from two words, schaden which means to damage or do harm, and freude which means joy.

Schadenfreude (SHOD-n-froy-duh).

It’s a funny word to read, its even funnier to say, but how much fun can you really have, how much joy can you truly experience, how much satisfaction can you actually get, when it comes as a direct result of someone else’s bad deal?

The 100 Years project

The 100 Years Project

For the last few years I have been fortunate enough to have interviewed some very interesting and incredible people who I have regularly showcased in the Inspiring People section of Dana Delivered. One of my favorite moments of each interview is the last question that I ask each and every Inspiring Person:

100 years from now what do you want to be remembered for?

Often the initial reaction to the question is as fascinating as the answer. To observe each person grapple with issues related to mortality, productivity, the meaning (or meaninglessness) of life as they endeavor to arrive at an answer that somehow reflects something of who they are and what they stand for, has piqued my curiosity to discover what anyone, anywhere might have to say when asked that very question:

100 years from now what do you want to be remembered for?

Join me everyday for the next 365 days as I ask the question, get an answer and capture the images of all kinds of people doing all kinds of things. Visit Dana’s Dailies on DanaRoc.com everyday, “friend request” me on Facebook or follow me, @Danaroc on Twitter.

How will you be remembered someday? What is it that you will have said or done or built or mastered that people will still be talking about decades and decades from now, long after you are gone and what if anything are you doing about that right now?

The 100 Years Project is ultimately an attempt in 3 phases to leave a record behind of this particular and unique period of time at the beginning of the 21st century.

Welcome to Phase 1…

100 From Now – Brett Barndt

Brett Barndt

Age:

48 years old

Occupation:

Consultant in the world of change management and media

Where do you live:

New York City

Where are you from:

Pennsylvania

100 Years from now what do you want to be remembered for:

In a hundred years I hope that I will be identified as part of a movement that achieved something to redefine what our a constitution is. Our founding fathers defined a constitutional paradigm for a couple hundred years and it changed a lot of places on this planet. I hope I can contribute to a movement that can help further define what that is for the next round of progress. Clearly the rights of all Americans are not treated equally. The evidence is clear. This to me is a failure of correct interpretation of the constitution, but it also may mean the failure of a paradigm that no longer applies…It may be that we need a new paradigm to define what the democracy will be going forward…
