  6. 6. Gina was sitting in the audience at a conference, and realized she was not happy with the way the day was going. When she heard the speaker talk about the importance of having an intention for every guest, project, meeting and interaction, a lightbulb went off. An Epiphany
  7. 7. Hence her #1 goal for 2016. Start each day, each meeting and each activity with a simple question. "What's my intention for doing this?" An Epiphany
  8. 8. When we think about goal setting, we typically think about it as a once a year, once a quarter or once a month activity. "What I realized sitting in the audience was that by writing my big goals down everyday AND then being clear at the start of every morning what I wanted out of each and every meeting, I could move to my goals MUCH more quickly." You can find a more detailed explanation of the Morning Ritual here: https://www.ownit.com/communities/ownit/posts/633509 Get Into A Morning Ritual
  9. 9. "By carving out 30 minutes in the morning to think about what is success for every meeting, I am much less overwhelmed." "My strong belief is that every person on the planet can find 30 minutes at some point. It may mean 10 minutes less Facebook here or one less news article there, but the return on these 30 minutes of intention and goal setting every day is invaluable.” Find 30 Minutes Every Morning

  18. 18. By writing your goals down everyday, you keep them at the top of your mind. "There is a direct connection between my brain, intention and a pen."
  19. 19. This is NOT a "to do" list. It's a way of placing your attention on your most important goals, regardless of the tasks of the day. It can help you put the most effort in to the most important tasks, rather than merely the most urgent. A Practice of Attention and Intention

  24. 24. Come up with 20 ideas. "When I ask myself a question like this -- and getting good at the questions is probably been more important for me -- and sit there with 20 ideas (even if most of them are bad), my perspective for the day ahead is different."
