In honor of Earth Day, consider the variety of impacts you have on our planet. First, take this short quiz to calculate your carbon footprint* and LIST your top three carbon contributing habits/patterns (the energy you use, your mode of transport, your diet etc.)
Next, in a second list, identify three symbolic footprints—what you hope to leave behind as a positive and enduring legacy (such as work you’ve done, passions you’ve explored, or your impact on the lives of others). 

Now take a moment to sit back and reflect. How are your two lists related? Notice how in this piece by ashleykirantan, the first list seems to inform her thinking about the second.
