Intentions Dont grow seeds.
Lionel Messi stands in front of the ball, about to take a penalty kick. The keeper stands at alert spreading his hands while oscillating from side to side to prepare for the shot.
A streak of sweat laces his face from head to chin. This is an important shot. It’s injury time, its been a goalless draw so far. The referee would certainly blow his whistle immediately after the kick.
There is no margin for error.
Messi steps back, takes a deep breath. The keeper never blinks like a chicken ready to evade its predator.
The keeper goes the wrong way….!
The ball hits the bar and bounces into the sidelines.
Spectators scream….NOOOO! That should have been a goal!
But the fact remain…. IT WASN’T!
Principles Dont respect persons. The universe doesn’t respect intentions. “Almost” doesn’t count.
Stop using these phrases:
I should have…
I could have….
I would have….
These are phrases that show intentions with no corresponding actions.
If you get a hunch to do something and it seems right to you (after your SWOT and strategic/risk analysis) then go for it and be ready for the reward or comeuppance.
INTENTIONS DONT GROW SEEDS!
