What gets us to our destination? Vision? Mission? Good intentions? Actually…none of the above. What gets us where we’d like to go is moving forward on a path that leads to there. It’s really two-fold. Being on the right path…and moving forward. I like what Andy Stanley says about the first part: "Path, not intent, determines destination."
I like what my friend Eric Swanson says about the second part: "You need to have a system that operationalizes your values. Otherwise, they’re really only sentiments."
Want to get to there? It will take more than intention.
