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...

Where are you from?

New York State

Where do you live?

Brooklyn, New York

What do you do for a living?

I demystify the human complexities of money.

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

For doing just that...

What do you think will have endured in 100 Years?

Everything that makes human nature and behavior beautiful and complicated!

What do you think most represents this unique era in which we are living today?

I see an interesting dichotomy. On one hand, we're more connected than at any other time in our history and we have access to more information than ever before. Yet, the results of our connectedness and access don't seem to evidence a greater sense of enlightenment or empowerment. Far to many people, in my humble opinion, abdicate critical choices to others. However, on the other hand, there are people leading fully engaged lives; they get that it is our personal responsibility to participate in our individual and collective blessings. Observing this dichotomy is absolutely fascinating.

Fill in the blank. In 100 Years I hope that ___________:

In 100 years, I hope that we will have finally recognized that the universal truth of abundance for us all can only be actualized if we are *truly* committed to sharing and faithfully follow-through on that commitment.
