An Intentional Life

Tuesday July 16, 2013 #541

 

“If we would only give, just once, the same amount of reflection to what we want to get out of life that we give to the question of what to do with a two weeks’ vacation, we would be startled at our false standards and the aimless procession of our busy days.”

 

~Dorothy Canfield Fisher

vacation

 

We spend hours, days, maybe weeks pondering over how to spend our next vacation.  The location, the sights to see, food to eat, people to visit, and more.  1 or 2 weeks, meticulously planned.  We go, we enjoy the vacation, and then it is over.  We then return to our lives – but with what plan?  Usually none other than answering our emails and looking at our to-do list.

 

The message here is that to maximize our lives – our whole lives, not just our vacations – we must be intentional.  We must take the time to reflect on what is truly important to us, what we would like to accomplish in our professional and personal lives, and begin taking action on those things that move us toward what we desire.
