There is a huge difference between a goal and an intention. Just listen to how different it sounds.
"My goal is to have 4 parties each month"
"I will call 2 potential hostesses every day"
The first is a hopeful slippery idea. It really has no more value than me saying "my goal is to look 10 years younger".
There is no shape to it, nothing I can sink my teeth into.
With the intention of "I will call 2 potential hostesses every day" , it is concrete.
- I can put it on my morning to do list every day and check it off.
- I completely own it. It is a very simple either I did it or I didn't.
- Is it even possible to own the the outcome of my goal for 4 parties? No way
- People might say no
- Someone might cancel
- I might really want 4 parties each month and work towards it, but there is no way for me to own it.
- I can only control my own actions
- I can make my calls
- I can work on my systems for keeping track of potential hostesses
- I can create new ways of finding potential hostesses
- But I can't control the outcomes of my efforts.
