We hear the terms goal and intention thrown around like confetti. More often than not, the words become used interchangeably which causes confusion.
Intentions and goals are different yet equally important. An intention is a guiding principle for how you want to be, live, and show up in life. It reflects your sentiment. A goal has a verifiable trajectory. It helps move you forward.
The difference between goals and intentions:
Goals are focused on the future.
Intentions are in the present moment.
Goals are a destination or specific achievement.
Intentions are lived each day, independent of reaching the goal or destination.
Goals are external achievements.
Intentions are internal values.
Intentions guide your vision of what you want out of life. Goals bring structure to your vision. By partnering goals with intentions, you will become one of the few people in life who enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
