Failure with Intent

Failure with Intent

Some outcomes can only result in a win or a loss. A draw is considered either or, based on the situations.

That win is cherished and celebrated. The opposite of that happens with a loss.

That loss is also criticized by others, causing more unrest than usual.

But, even with a loss, the intent with how the loss came to be matters even more.

Did you give it your all, your 100% and then lost? If you failed with that intent, then there are only lessons to be learnt from it and no form of disappointment needs to take place.

But, if you thought failure was already on the cards, if the intent to win wasn’t there, if your 100% wasn’t given, then even with a win, that is a failure.

A deadline to yourself

A deadline to yourself

Deadlines solve things.

They create this time pressure, which allows you to not delay something and to make it a priority.

From time to time, if you’re comfortable in that scenario, you should create deadlines for yourself.

Deadlines which won’t define your life, but will help you to solve your problems, create your habits, help you accomplish your to-do lists.

If not for these deadlines, for some the motivation of doing something may be enough, but if it runs out, then these self-created deadlines help you to push yourself more.
