Intention-Setting Isn’t Easy

It can be remarkably difficult to determine what you want out of a moment, an experience, or even an actual menu.

But if you don’t know what you want, it’ll be a lot harder to get it. Ordering one of everything isn’t an efficient or effective way to choose your entree.

Even a little intentionality can go a long way: simply write down a prediction or desire, then review and revise it as you go.

Lots of little corrections are the best way to keep on course, and they’ll get smaller and smoother with experience and confidence.


Time capsule: this is my 200th post in a row. I still enjoy the creative challenge of looking for something to write about each day, as well as the sense of accomplishment that comes from pressing the publish button in spite of my inner perfectionist.

As it has been since the beginning, my intention with this blog is to build my comfort with choosing reliability even over perfection. If you’re in it for the long haul, imperfection is a given — so it’s far better to be human every day than to choose irrelevance by waiting for inhuman perfection.
