When we get so busy chasing the dollar, priorities get misconstrued and before we know it, our actions speak louder than words on an unhappy life.
Sometimes we have to realize that in order to be successful, it needs to be holistic, not balanced, in order to be happy. Living a balanced life is phony. Instead, to live a counterbalanced life shows that when specific focus is put onto something, even if it means putting other things aside for a time, that one item can be truly completed and then we can get back to finding a balance in another direction. This keeps us constantly in motion.
It’s not about what is most productive; it’s about relationships and keeping them up as top priority. Always.
“Keep looking up, and I’ll keep looking out.” –Aaron Young
Welcome to The Lookout Society Podcast, where Aaron shares a story from his life, then connects it with a business principle to pass on. This is his way of helping others that are also going down an entrepreneurship path as contributing members to society. As an added bonus, Aaron sometimes shares wonderful gems of Oregonian knowledge from his home state and weaves the passion he has for the community he lives in as an invitation for others to visit the Pacific Northwest.

LESSON FOR THE DAY
As we get busy in our jobs, hobbies and responsibilities, don’t forget the relationships that matter the most. It’s about relationships that you want to be around during the holidays, or when you get old and need help. What are you doing to build your own relationships? How do you show that they matter to you?

ABOUT THE SHOW NOTES
Each of The Lookout Society show notes are written by Natalie C. Martin
LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT NATALIE:
A life-long learner and unashamed history nerd, Natalie is a certified teacher in secondary education history and English turned stay at home mom. She is the mother of four energetic children all two years apart from 8 to 2 and recently celebrated her 11th wedding anniversary with the only boyfriend she ever had. After the kiddies are put to bed, she writes show notes as she continues to ignite her passion for writing and editing, fact checking and learning to make the world wide web a more educated place. When we learn that more gets accomplished when we replace “can’t” with “can” so many possibilities are opened to us. In the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!”
