Last week I had a speaking engagement titled "Living with Intention". This is a powerful issue for all of us, yet it tends to be talked about only in select venues. Like many other issues related to leadership, it can be viewed from the highest perspective in more abstract ways, or from the most immediate moment-to- moment perspective of how we live our lives. Today's article is the second, about how we use intention in our daily encounters. So, with that, my intention here is to provide a brief, thought-provoking article on Intention, and the power that provides to a leader.
As always, I want to point out that we are all leaders, with the first lesson of leadership being to lead our own path. So, no matter what you do for a living, take a moment to think about the leadership you exhibit in every conversation, in every interaction, and in every engagement. Leadership is an on-going process. We are each explorers on a journey through an undiscovered life. How we lead that life is our choice, each minute, each day, each week. If we choice to repeat our actions daily, without thought to what we are hoping to create, then our future can be reasonably assured to very closely resemble our past. However, if you want a different tomorrow than you are experiencing today, get in touch with the Power of Intention. So, take a few minutes, take some notes, and change your life.
