“Find Your North Star.”

iPhone Life Magazine - - Productivity -

Scott Amyx Au­thor and Man­ag­ing Part­ner at Amyx Ven­tures “Busy­ness is not the same as pro­duc­tiv­ity. True pro­duc­tiv­ity moves the nee­dle to­ward some­thing greater. When you have clar­ity on what your pas­sion or goal in life is, then you have a guid­ing North star. This is big­ger than a New Year's res­o­lu­tion; it has to span the time hori­zon of your life. For some, this can take years to fig­ure out. Even if you have a vague idea of what you want your legacy to be, such as want­ing to help spur in­no­va­tion on a global scale, that's enough to begin to de­con­struct that life­time goal into multi-year goals. Now, when you are pro­duc­tive, you are in­trin­si­cally mo­ti­vated be­cause you know ex­plic­itly how your ac­tion to­day ties into the big­ger pic­ture over your life­span. Only when

we do the things most un­com­fort­able do we begin to stretch our­selves, grow, and ex­tend our in­flu­ence and power. Had you not taken those risks, you may never have met that per­son or been in­tro­duced to that op­por­tu­nity that would ul­ti­mately change the tra­jec­tory of your life to move you closer to re­al­iz­ing your life's mis­sion state­ment.”
