We've spoken before about a Statement of Intent.
It'll give a clear indication of the any intended outcome.
In business, the equivalent is called a Mission Statement.
For those who are serious about their intentions, it's a serious fact.
Business people can quote their Mission Statements with clarity.
And more importantly, with conviction.
It's the triphammer for progress.
When infused with beliefs, values, it drives any operation with purpose.
For example, if the mission statement is compatible with all your beliefs and personal values, it will give meaning and direction to your policies, and you can operate them , implement them, with certitude and confidence.
Certitude comes from the definition, the articulation of the goal.
Confidence comes from your complete belief in the value of what you’re doing, whether it’s for yourself or others.
Start using odd moments to developing it.
Catch yourself in your time, and ask what you can do to enhance your life.
You can do this randomly. You’re not looking for an immediate and life-solving answer, though you may get one.
You’re training your mind to be selective about what you’re thinking. Hour by hour, day by day, you’ll find yourself looking at your life and everything in it with a purpose.
As you do this frequently, you may find that you become more pro-active in your thinking and in your behaviour.
Spontaneous reaction and over-reaction begin to diminish.
You’ll find your mind foraging and mining new approaches and alternative responses.
Abstract hazy aims begin to fade and get replaced with clear points, definite aims, and precise directions with which you feel comfortable and propelled.
It's a statement that sums up your purpose.
