I intend to . . . – Monday Morning Coffee

What is it that you intend to do?

Don’t you think it’s about time to Just DO IT?

How long have you been intending to do this?

WHEN do you intend to START?

Once you start, what will you do?

Do you know HOW to do it?

If your intentions are FOCUSED and authentic, does it matter if you know how?

The most amazing accomplishments happen when “clueless” people take persistent and consistent action on their intentions.


They woke up one day and finally decided to take full responsibility for following through with their intentions.

Here’s the mystical truth about this: You don’t need anyone else’s permission.

Nike was right!

Just DO it!

Of course, some people will try to talk you out of it.

They’ll try to help you “come to your senses.”

They might warn you of FAILURE and tell grand stories about other people who tried it and fell flat.

Some folks might even JUDGE you as being foolhardy and selfish.

After all, who are YOU to decide to do something so irrational and “out of character.”

I have only 2 comments:

  • They could be (and probably are) WRONG!
  • It’s none of your business what other people think of you.

Your new job is to prove them wrong as you consistently and persistently move forward bit by bit with your intentions.

Here’s the real icing on the cake . . .

At that very moment when your commitment is solid . . .

The right Creativity & Spirit will show up within you and provide the lift you need to get off the ground.

The right people will begin to show up – Loving and supportive people.

The right things will start to happen.

You’ll find yourself riding a wave you could never have imagined in your wildest dreams.

Nowhere in all of the above do I reference this as being “Easy” or “Effortless,” yet I assure you the fruit of taking action on your intentions will be VERY sweet.

The below video inspired this post . . . As did Debbie’s commitment to write daily . . . and the daily welcoming presence of Chuck in  the School drop off line . . . and David’s lessons on the soccer field . . . and my own adventure in the building of Pareto Realty.

Scaring myself daily seems to be a requirement, and it’s truly exhilarating.

Your turn 🙂

Hope you have a great week!
