"live life intentionally"

an old friend of mine from high school emailed me today, and in that mail, she stated that "i'm trying to live life intentionally." it immediately struck me as a very simple and concise, yet POWERFUL, statement of certainty and dedication. think about it......what exactly does this mean to live life intentionally? my first thought is to understand that you get out of life what you put into it---as another friend recently blogged about (in terms of generating additional streams of income) on his blog. secondly, i began to think about how i constantly remind myself that success is no accident and comes about by calculated and organized planning and doing. the last thought that i had in reading this (and possibly the saddest) was that the majority of individuals do not fully understand what it takes to achieve their goals or, even worse, they know but are not willing to put in the effort (possibly from a lack of faith that their goals and dreams are actually achievable).

there is a great deal to be said about purpose. walking with purpose. speaking with purpose. doing with purpose. thinking with purpose. planning with purpose. these are essentials in achieving that level of fulfilment we seek. as i used to hear growing up..."if you don't have the time, then you better make the time"!!!

how much is "it" worth to you?
