Expectations vs Intentions

Expectations are outcome-based. Here’s what I expect to get/have/be at the end of this journey.

Intentions are processed-based. Here’s how I promise to show up along the way.

Too often, expectations focus on things that are out of our control. They have an inherent fragility about them, making it easy to get knocked off course when something doesn’t go to plan.

Intentions, however, keep us anchored yet open. They allow us to stay rooted in what matters yet open to what we meet along the way.
