An intentional life is simple - it means that everything you do is done with intention (yes, even watching TV). It doesn’t mean that there are things you should or shouldn’t be doing, but that whatever it is you are doing should be with intention.
It’s not about how much you do, but how you do it. It’s about realizing what you need, and making time for it.I struggle with being checklist obsessed, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s not about how much you do, but how you do it. It’s about realizing what you need, and making time for it. That’s at least what I left An Intentional Autumn feeling. It doesn’t mean you have to take on more work. I actually left feeling like maybe I need to take on less, and that I should focus more on the work that matters. And that ultimately, I need to make more time for all things that matter - Zack, Owen, friends, family, me.
It’s easy to bury yourself in work, but in ten, twenty, thirty years, will it matter? Finding balance is key and making time, being intentional with your time is what it’s all about.
