If you’ve ever been to one of my presentations, you’re more than likely to have heard me quote my Dad’s mantra for life. Dad says “If you want to get stuff done… do stuff!”
The key however, is to hold yourself accountable for doing the right stuff that will move you closer to your goals and living a more happy, flourishing and prosperous work and personal life.
To get things done, or to ‘do stuff’ as my Dad would say… and to do it with intention, means being clear in your mind about WHY you’re doing it, and the impact of your intentions, promises, actions and results not only on yourself, but on the others who will be affected by you choosing to do whatever it is you’re doing.
This is key to holding yourself accountable for being more mindfully engaged in more moments more often in your work and personal life… and it is one of the antidotes to boredom.
Over the past fortnight I’ve been working on itentional affirmation #24 “I get things done with intention… this week I will finish an outstanding project.”
Each week I’m reporting here on my personal experience in implementing my 52 Intentional Affirmations. These are designed to help us be more intentionally mindful of the impact our intentions have on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.

Your Intentional Action
So I invite you to take a moment after reading this post, look at what you’ve got on your ‘to do’ list today, ask yourself why you’re doing each of these things and how what you’re going to be doing will impact not only on you, but on others.
Focus on your intention for others while completing each of the tasks required of you, and you just might find some of those more ‘boring’ activities, when approached and completed with intention, are not so boring after all.
That’s what I’ve been doing over the past week… and in reality, the past fortnight. We’ve just finished an exciting upgrade to my SalesCoachCentral website. My intention was clear – I wanted to help even more salespeople, sales managers and business owners build their skills, confidence, pride and success to win more new, repeat and referral sales… and I wanted to achieve that by doing it for FREE… it’s a bit of practical intentional altruism from Liz and I to the world of sales for helping us live happy, flourishing and prosperous lives.
And that’s what we’ve done. The project is finished, and I’m really proud of what I believe is one of the web’s best resources for salespeople, sales managers and business owners. You can check it out by clicking here, and if you like what you see (and I know you will), I invite you to let your social media contacts know about it… it’s a great resource.
