Acting on Intention

by Kris Pitcher

Intention sparked by desire can fizzle before you know it when it isn't backed with some action. Action seems to be the key behind making all this work. We can have all the good intentions in the world but no one's going to do the work for us.

And that's where most people get stuck. They get stuck with good intentions, and desire. But then what? It's the "then what" that separates those who are successful with this whole process of weight loss or management or what ever you might call it. Of progress.

Acting on intention is the only way forward. It means having a plan besides "hope". Hope isn't a good plan. Action is a good plan. It's pretty simple really. Do what you intend to do. Plan ahead, make it happen. Be organized, take what you need with you, schedule what's important.

None of it happens by accident. OMG! I fell onto the treadmill at 5:00 am! Yeah...never gonna happen. It happens with intention, and action. Set the alarm the night before, put out your socks, get up, lace up, and walk. Do it day after day.

But that's nothing you don't already know. This is a good time of year to remind ourselves of our intentions. It's a good time to check in with our goals and our plans. Maybe we're on track, and maybe we have some actions to take. Let's get it together so we're setting the right pace as we march into the holidays.

It's all about acting on intentions. Ready, set...action!
