Intent or Deadline?

By: Dinesh Bhandari

Are you working with intent or just for the deadline?

When you work with intent, you know why you have picked it up, you aspire to achieve something at the end of it. you might not know the exact outcome but you know you intend to get to that. It’s important to take a step back and reflect on the purpose behind your work, especially when you’re caught up in a cycle of deadlines. By reminding yourself of why you started on this path in the first place, you can regain a sense of motivation and focus on what truly matters.

Don’t let the goal get blurry for you might completely misplace it and get lost in a vicious cycle of incomplete expectations. Purpose doesn’t always have to be a glorious one.It can simply mean what you want to achieve in your everyday life. The small wins. Productivity should be purposeful rather than just being for the sake of it. But this doesn’t close the window for spontaneity. What we rather remember is that to be spontaneous is to fulfill your purpose but with the thrill of achieving something new, at the same time.

Every now and then remind yourself what is the intent behind doing something you plan to do, for, it is easier to be responsible when you know the purpose behind your engagements.
