Being intentional is having a purpose for everything you do, when you do it.
It’s giving your full attention to the task at hand.
It’s putting first things first.
Whether at the gym, at work, or at home, it’s important that your actions reflect your goals and add value. It’s so easy to get comfortable with daily life, mindlessly going through the motions. It’s like when you’re driving, and you arrive at your destination without any recollection of how you got there. Sometimes we all need to take a step back, look at how we’re spending our time, and re-evaluate.
How are you spending your time?
Do you have a schedule?
Any habits and routines that you can lean on, even when you’re at your busiest?
Are those habits moving you closer to, or further from, achieving your goals?
Is the way you’re spending your time reflective of your goals?
Do you even have goals?
Where do your priorities lie?
Are the things you’re doing every day indicative of those priorities?
These are tough questions.
I still struggle with them.
But rather than running from them, use them to audit yourself and make improvements.
And, “Wherever you are, be all there.”
