intention means nothing
While at Influence, I was privileged to hear from Shauna Niequist.
There are numerous things that she said that have stuck out to me. I wrote quickly as she shared her thoughts, but there was one line in particular that has actually impacted my everyday.
If it it just a vague intention, it won't happen.
She urged the importance of follow through.
How if you say hey I want to hang out with you, you have to follow up with what's your schedule? let's get it written down.
Since then, I've been making a better attempt at being intentional.
I follow up "oh you wanna do coffee" with "when works?". And then I open up my calendar and get things down.
It's simple but it's necessary.
Intention means nothing without action.
How are you intentional, or better, how do you take action?
