Question Of The Week
How can you live with more intention?
At first, I was not sure what living with intention meant. As time has gone on, I think that I have learned a little more about what this means. Intention is the sister to determination. That’s how I see it anyway.
Intention, I think, has gotten a bad wrap. I think it has been associated with misunderstanding for a long time. You know how we say, oh, that was not my intention or, I intended to do it, but it slipped my mind.
I believe that living with intention is not allowing things that you truly intend to do to get past you—using that determination trait to get it done. Living with intention means moving misunderstanding out of the way and being precise about the direction of your life, where you are headed, and how you plan to get there.
If you can’t fly, then you will take a train. If the trains are no longer running, then you will take a bus. If all the tickets are sold out, then you will drive. If the car breaks down, then you will run. When your legs get tired, then you will walk.
That, to me, is living with intention.
