We’re all told to set goals. Humans are wired to strive for stuff, more-so even than we are for achieving stuff. Once a goal is achieved it’s great for a day or so, then it’s business as usual and a hunt for the next goal. I tried to wrack my brain for some goals I might have:
- 1 night
- 1 week
- 2 months
- 4 years
Those are the timespans linked with any significant goals I can think of in my life at the moment.
So my big question is: What happens 4 years from now? In the meantime, lots to do 🙂
What separates your actions from those of a stone or a piece of wood? Sometimes not that much. Sometimes a lot.
Intentionality is defined by the Stanford encyclopedia of Philosophy as “the power of minds to be about, to represent, or to stand for, things, properties and states of affairs”. Standing for something. Having a goal at the fore front of your mind.
It’s a lofty concept if you dig into it. Just check out the sprawling Wikipedia page: link. But it is at the centre of my next guest’s life. It gives him some of his greatest experiences and successes. Being intentional affects his family, his goals and his actions.
