8 Inspiring Quotes And Lessons From Beyoncé's 'Homecoming' Film - YFS Magazine

8 Lessons From Beyoncé

  1. Study your journey and use everything you’ve got. Take a scientific approach to your successes and failures and use them to inform your decisions.
  2. Recognize the sacrifice it takes to achieve things, not just the results. Beyoncé is an accomplished artist, but little is talked about the effort it took for her to be so.
  3. Experiment and learn as you go. Work-life balance is not easily attained, prioritization is a welcomed and necessary approach.
  4. Know your limits and make sure whenever you push them you do so wisely.
  5. Respect the work necessary to achieve things. Hold the vision and build a team to execute the details with intention and accountability.
  6. Seek continuous improvement as Beyoncé does through her rigorous and focused work ethic. We can live our lives to the fullest by continuously learning, growing and thriving.
  7. Define your core values and then, live and lead by them. For Beyoncé, family is a core value and priority. She aims to cultivate and express it in her life, business, and on the stage. Consider your own values and how they inform how you show up for yourself and others.
  8. Be grateful, be humble, and spark vision in others. Nothing moves us forward faster than gratitude. Humility enables us to reach others in an authentic way. Gratitude and humility empower us to spark a vision in others. Take your crazy ideas, express them in a tangible way and you will embolden others to do the same.

“When a scientist runs an experiment, there are all sorts of results that could happen. Some results are positive and some are negative, but all of them are data points. Each result is a piece of data that can ultimately lead to an answer. And that’s exactly how a scientist treats failure: as another data point.”

Two Unhelpful Ways Of Dealing With The Album Lemonade

On one hand there are men that get offended by the album as if a woman behaving unexpectedly is a direct threat to them. 

On the other hand, there are men that celebrate the album and the strength it talks about without understanding how, as men, they can make this strength unnecessary by treating women better.

5 Lessons for Managing D&I
  • Recognize the Shift in Global Understanding of D&I.  Diverse thinkers come from a variety of different backgrounds.
  • Build an Inclusive Environment. All people are encouraged to draw upon their unique experiences, perspectives and backgrounds to advance business goals.
  • Use Multiple Practices and Measures.  Have solutions in place to monitor and retain a talented and diverse workforce.
  • Ensure Leaders Model Diversity and Inclusion. It sets the tone for the rest of the organization to follow suit.
  • Recognize the Connection Between Innovation and D&I. Diversity and inclusion increase innovation and reduce business risk.

Cognitive Diversity

The concept of cognitive diversity focuses on diversity of thinking and is composed of four dimensions:

  • Perspectives. People represent situations in different ways
  • Interpretations. Through diverse interpretations, teams can discover multiple resolutions.
  • Heuristics. People resolve issues in different ways.
  • Predictive models. Some analyze, and others look for a story. Both are useful for discovering workplace solutions.

Idealizing love=unrealistic expectations

Love doesn't equal compatibility

Falling in love with someone doesn’t necessarily mean they’re a good partner for you. Love is an emotional process; compatibility is a logical process. And the two don’t bleed into one another very well.

Personal & Individual OKRs (Objectives and Key Results)
Personal OKRs are for your personal life, individual OKRs are for performance tracking at work.
Why Use Personal OKRs?
We all want things from life, but life wants things from us too.
  • How do you accomplish the things that are important to you, but aren’t urgent? 
  • How do you move forward when life is screaming at you to focus on now?
From Goal setting to Goal achieving.

  • First, Close Out the Last Quarter with Learning. Take the last week of the quarter to grade last quarter’s OKR set. Reflection is the key to accelerated learning.
  • Will you Explore or Exploit Next Quarter?How much time should you spend exploring new possibilities, and how much exploiting ones you have proven work?
  • Focus on Won’t Get Done. OKRs for things you’re worried you’re NOT going to do, not for tracking things you will.

Marketing claims

Marketing claims behind alkaline water are based on the acid-ash hypothesis. The idea is that eating certain foods, like meat, dairy, and eggs, results in acid ash in your body, which increases your acid levels and causes health problems.

While there are some poorly designed studies that suggest alkaline water confers health benefits, there is no rigorous scientific evidence to support this belief.

The science behind blood pH

You can't change the pH of your body by drinking alkaline water. Your body regulates its blood pH in a very narrow margin. If your pH varied too much, you wouldn't survive. 

However, your diet does affect the pH of your urine. Most people's urine is about 6, which is acidic and not a problem. Alkaline may make your urine less acidic, but it doesn't make a difference to your health.

Sleep is not just about rest. It’s the period where the mind is shut off and reset. 

When we sacrifice sleep, we also sacrifice creativity, self-control, and attention span. When sleep is lacking, so is self-control.

The 2010s was the decade African stars got globally recognized, and ‘Afrobeats’ went mainstream, with artists like Davido, Wizkid, Mr Eazi, and Burna Boy.

American pop icons like Kanye West and Beyonce took inspiration from African talents, with many collaborations and fusion albums.

Life-altering lessons
  1. Don’t bottle up your emotions, become self-aware and explore your emotions.  Find an outlet such as writing, meditation, or talking to a friend.
  2. Vulnerability takes courage.  The gifts we unlock by being willing to be vulnerable far outweigh the difficulty in doing so.
  3. Show up, face fear, and move forward. Because fear and criticism will always be there in some form, the best course of action is always to show up anyway and move forward.
  4. Seek excellence, not perfection.  Focus on realizing excellence, the best version of yourself despite your flaws.
  5. Dare to be yourself – in your strengths, skills, and beauty as well as your flaws and insecurities. In doing so, you can realize your true strength of spirit.
