July 2016 Editor's Note: Start Increasing Your Output Now
Here we are, full swing into summer. Not only are are we pulling out cute sunnies and attending fly pool parties, but it's also just about an inkling past the middle of the year. And, what does that mean for you? It is about that time to dust off those vision boards you worked hard on for the New Year, take a look at some of those bucket lists you thought long and hard over and most importantly, take a self-assesstment. Have you been able to scratch off anything? Are you doing everything in your power to move closer toward those goals? Has your plan of action been successful? How can you majorly top what you've already been doing?
Back in January, I think I made the biggest vision board and set a longer bucket list than I have in previous years. Goals were set. I prayed those ambitions into existence and thankfully have accomplished more than a few of those things and 2016 isn't even over yet. As excited as I am for those wins, I'd be lying if I said I can completely check off every box on my lists. However, after meeting with lots of new interesting people who inspire me, taking quite a few enrichment classes, diving into a variety of daily inspirational reads, and lots of trial and error, I think the biggest light bulb went off not too long ago. My output needs to be far more than it has been. Our output should be more than what we think is the "limit." Let me breakdown.
When people say, "you have just as many hours in a day as Beyonce," whether you are a loyal member of the Beehive or not, there's is no denying that, Queen B's "output" is pretty phenomenal. I am not saying go so hard that you have nothing left for yourself just for the hell of it. I am saying to strategically take full advantage of every opportunity you have to supersede what others expect of you in order to be the best version of yourself.
By allowing maximum output now, you set yourself up to receive tons of rewarding input later. It's time to win! #livelovealaurean - Click to Tweet!
