Great or Just Well-Intentioned?

The world is full of well-intentioned people.

Who ‘intend’ to do things right but don’t do it after the initial euphoria wears down.

To be great we need to cross the bridge and turn intention into action.

Until that happens we’ll just be an empty promise.

So, why do well-intentioned people miss out on greatness?

Is it a lack of commitment?

Or a lack of ability?

Maybe.

But there is more to it.

According to Pearson’s Law:

“When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported back, the rate of improvement accelerates.”

Athletes use this law to measure, track and improve their performance in sports.

Founders use it in their startups.

Then why can’t we use it at work and in life?

It is simple if we create a system to measure our action based on our intention, and then use it to get out of a rut, our lives will be more fulfilling and we’ll be able to do what we say we’ll do.
