set the intention

What dreams are sitting unattended to right now?

What five things do you want to accomplish, “big hairy audacious goals”, in your life?

Write those down.   The next thing to do is to announce those goals to others, make it big and tell everyone you top five goals for your life.   Start to breathe those goals.  Start to taste those goals.  Start to hear those goals.   Start to see those goals.  

The big goals will then need to be broken down into smaller goals, yearly goals, monthly goals and weekly goals.  The plan is to achieve the big goal but first the goals need to be more manageable and attainable.

Use the very big goals as a means of setting your intention, which is like setting your compass.  You know you want to head north and along the way you know there are going to be things you have to do.  You are going to have to cross mountains, rivers, and you’ll have to face your own lions, tigers and bears.

“Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

It will take time and effort to realize the dream, so set the intention today so that the dream can take shape tomorrow.
