Intentions are Cheap

Hello World,

You may find this funny but I actually found the phrase “intentions are cheap” from a Harvard Business Review article about strategy while working on my MBA assignment. Even in business, intentions are cheap.

I want to ask you about your feelings towards this phrase. How do you feel about this idea?

When someone forgets to get a gift for you on your birthday but really wanted to, you would say something polite back to him or her, “it was the intention that mattered!” But, in reality, No it didn’t!  Because, INTENTIONS are CHEAP and you cannot verify some ones intent!

This applies to your everyday goal settings as well. You intent on losing 10 pounds, but sorry even Harvard Business Review are challenging your intentions.  Intentions do not mean anything until you process it.  Even when you start testing your intentions, other obstacles/situations/issues=–you name it, may arise while you are applying your goals to challenge your initial intent.  When you test your goals, you realize that they need modifications along the way.

Your initial intent never remains and you learn along the way. This idea helps you combat fear.  Some people have many goals and intentions; however, they never process them due to fear.  Now that you know your intentions grow as you apply them, why should you fear?  Either way, you are creating a learning opportunity for yourself.

Therefore, I want you to just go for your desires and work hard. If you have, “intentions” then let’s bring them to reality.

I hope you are following my 5 power goal steps to complete your ultimate goal while getting your short term goals done TODAY!

How to Track your FIVE Power Goals

Hello World

I have been ranting about this Five Power Goal daily gain towards your final goal since a few days now.  I want you to really incorporate it in your everyday routine.  Yes, I expect you to wake up in the morning, be grateful, and start your day by listing Five important things that needs to be completed today! Yes, TODAY!

Hold on a second! This list is not your grocery list or your shopping list.  This is list should be helping you obtain a future goal.  This list is a bigger goal segmented into pieces.

For example, you want to start your own Salon business.  Okay great!  What is the first thing you need to determine?

  • Maybe researching the area you want the Salon to be located?
  • Researching the competition in the area?
  • Finding people with skills that you require for your Salon?
  • Finding suppliers for the equipment and products for your Salon?
  • Registering the Business?

The list will be never ending but I want you segment one goal of yours into five parts every day. However, the catch is that you have to achieve these segmented goals every day.  You can’t leave it incomplete so be mindful of time.

Let’s start with a goal today and not procrastinate for once!

How to Keep Moving with your GOALS

Hello World,

Yes, I am a busy bee. I love to write and just speak my heart out but I have a lot to do, one being my MBA! Now, on this sleepless night. I would like to speak to you about effective goal setting techniques. Why do we need effective goal setting techniques? Because it helps us moving forward.

True to the name of this blog, you need to learn how to not GIVE UP on your goals.

How do you stay motivated? You have to take your goals and strategize it! You have to make it a habit and you can only make something a habit if you practice it everyday. You have to take your goal and automate it to your every day so it becomes a habit.

Now that’s not as easy as said. Many people make new years resolution and fail on the second day. This is because there is no reminder, they are not held accountable if they don’t complete the task. Hence, at the end there is no motivation to complete the task.

That means we have to create accountability. And here is how we will do that! This seems simple but this also needs to be practiced every day. In the morning every day I would like you to keep a Notebook to write down your 5 Power goals for the day!

No not just any goals! It can’t be doing groceries – that’s not a goal, it’s a task! I want you to segment your goals, break it down.

Example: Long term – I would like to own a shop. This is a broad long term goal that needs many short term goals before I get to this goals.

Therefore, my Power 5 goals for today can be –

1. Conduct Research on (Blank)

2. Research Suppliers, find top 10 suppliers

3. Email top 10 suppliers

4. Research mentors on LinkedIn

5. Write an Email Template for the mentors / a Pitch for my future Shop

That’s it. Keep it simple but make sure the list is completed today! So tomorrow, you can add to the list and not holding off tasks you didn’t complete. You only  progress if the tasks are completed daily. You only see results if you practice daily.

Mind Mapping and Brainstorming

Hello World,

I know brainstorming is something you learned back when you were in Grade 5 but you’d be surprised to learn that I have used the same form of visual organization technique in my MBA class as Mind mapping! Honestly, it really brings back your focus when you have too much going on and I have always too much going on!

Often people take on too much responsibilities. The list is just never ending. They have loan, expenses, work, projects and never ending list of things they want to achieve. Then there is the list of how they will achieve all their goals, the process part! All becomes a clutter in the brain. Therefore it’s easier when visualized.

Grab a piece of paper and draw your goals out. You don’t have to go to art school to be great at this! Just make a map and use different colors to of what’s important to you right now.  My mind was a clutter today!

I made one to focus on what’s important to me today! It’s a simple one and it doesn’t have an action plan attached to it. But it really helps me focus on what I need to take action on.

Wedding Dress Consultant

Hello World,

To all my brides, I know what you are feeling! The wedding day anxiety and half of it revolves around if the dress will look good or not!

To find the perfect dress for your special day you need stand in front of the mirror and be true to yourself and figure out what compliments your body and all your curves. Yes, play a little say yes to the dress at home! Really think about what you want for that special day!

This may just be me but when it comes to fashion I like to keep things classy, time less and comfortable.

Yes, all three of these key things are required. Why? Classy because you don’t want to be turned to be a meme later on. Time less because its a milestone you are celebrating. Comfortable because you want to walk around/dance peacefully without worrying about any wardrobe malfunctions.

The top half and the bottom skirt are the two most important things girls look for. I don’t like being a plain jane, hence I like my top to be a sweet heart neck with thorough details and I like the skirt very simple.

I have picked some favorites…

Keep me posted on what you like!
