Setting Intentions: Actions vs Goals

Summer’s coming to an end, and we have about 3 months left this year to reach our goals.

(I don’t count December – it’s a short month, people don’t usually invest all that much in their business in that month, and besides: I personally prefer December to be a phase of introspection, review, and planning for the upcoming year).

So. Three months, to reach our goals.

Now, how do you make sure you actually reach those goals?

Be it revenue, product launch, hiring staff, raising money – we all have goals, and we all think that the way to get there, is to set intentions around reaching them.

But that doesn’t work.

Goal intentions are useless.

If you want to reach your goals, the only way it’ll happen is by taking specific, strategically designed actions.

Executing on actions gets you closer to your goals, nothing else.

So as you sit and plan for the final phase of this year, and you’re planning your projects and actions, ask yourself:

Am I setting a specific intent, to take a specific action – and, does this action directly and demonstrably contribute to my reaching my goal?

Psychologists call this ‘implementation intention’, and it’s a powerful approach for choosing what to do, when, in what way, and for what purpose.

Don’t set tasks or actions or intentions because you’re telling yourself the outcome will be so awesome.

Set intentions and actions because you know – rationally, logically, and strategically – that with each action checked off, you’re that much closer to your goal.

Oh, hey: do you want to have a conversation about your own goals and the specific, results-building actions that are required to get you to reach them?

Then book a time here, and let’s talk.
