A lie does not consist in the indirect position of words, but in the desire and intention, by false speaking, to deceive and injure your neighbour. ~ Jonathon Swift
When a man says he approves of something in principle, it means he hasn’t the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice.
Otto Von Bismark
Are you intending to do something but not taking action? Are your intentions good? but your doing weak? Have you thought about whether what you intend is practical, achievable and in the span of your control? If yes then what did you do today to align your intention and action?
Big gaps can be narrowed by making small adjustments. Imagine how much difference a small shim makes when a newly hung door won’t close. If I intend to run a marathon in June and I stay sitting on the couch – it won’t happen. But if I go out and run today , even a 1/2 mile and then repeat and add a bit I can become a runner. I might never finish the marathon but I can knock off 5k, 10k and maybe a 1/2 marathon.
Take the steps today to make your intentions real or you are lying to yourself and others.
