I had a reader of my Extra Points this morning ask a follow-up question and I wanted to share it and my response.

The question was – “Dan, could you define the word ‘intentional’ as you have used it in today’s piece?”

Great question! Here was my response…

“For me, becoming ‘intentional’ means you make a concerted effort to think about, prepare for, and plan. Many people ‘unintentionally’ execute due to the results of others, good fortune, or just serendipity. If you make doing these things a practice by thinking about them in advance, your rate of success will improve.”

Being intentional means planning for success. I was challenged by my accountability partner today to set more specific goals for the rest of the year. I guess she read my mailing today!

What about you? Where can you become more intentional in your preparation?
