Action and Intention

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. – Confucius

We’ve talked about action. We’ve also talked about intention.  Confused reading them?

Action and intention. One couldn’t exist without another.

To effect long lasting changes, we need to have a strong intention.

To show our commitment in our physical world, we need to show a firm action.

We may be imperfect. We wish to do good, but our actions are imperfectly executed.

We may be scared. We may procrastinate in taking action.

Faced with uncertainty, what should we really do?

Always err on action. Imperfect action is always better appreciated than a perfectly-concocted thought that is not executed.

From imperfect action, reflect and gather feedback and aim to do better next time round.

Over time, with persistence, you would be creating the the masterpiece. You would be the very man you claim to be.

And you will be doing it with integrity, knowing that you walk the talk.

What is the one imperfect thing that you can do at this very moment?
