What one does is what counts. Not what one had the intention of doing.
~~ Pablo Picasso
You know, I intended to do a lot of things in my life. I intended to achieve certain goals. I intended to be down to my goal weight by this time of the year.
However, as Pablo Picasso says in the quote above, What one does is what counts, not what one had the intention of doing. Now, not DOING what you intended to do does not make you a bad person. It happens to the best of people. We often have the greatest intentions. But, sometimes it is difficult to follow through on those intentions.
What is an intention? It’s an aim or a plan.
I was interviewed today for a podcast. We were discussing goal setting and Carole Sanek, the host of The Crazy Marketing Ladies Show, asked why people that set New Year’s Resolutions don’t usually complete their resolution and give up.
I told her that people don’t really set goals when they set their New Year’s Resolution (NYR). They set intentions, not goals. The majority of people set an intention or a resolve to change something. However, because we (and I say we, because I have set many NYR’s with an intention of completing them) just set the intent to change something, we don’t create The What , The How or The Why for what we want to change. We don’t set a goal.
But, as Picasso said, it’s what people DO that counts. When you follow through with the intent. When you act on that intention, then it counts. Then you will likely achieve the intended outcome.
You probably intended to do a lot of things. You may not have done them, however. You can change that. Don’t just go into the goal with the intent of doing it. Go in with the knowledge of what you want, the way to do it and the desire to see it through to the end and you will DO what it takes and do what you intended to do.
Don’t Go Out Today with the intent to achieve your goals!
