“I am for an art that is political - erotical - mystical, that does something more than sit on its ass in a museum.”
Claes Oldenburg


Intention vs Hope and Want

“What do I INTEND to accomplish with my next creative project?”

Good question, yes?

This is a much better question to ask yourself than “What do I HOPE to accomplish?” or “What do I WANT to accomplish?”

Using words like “HOPE” and “WANT” leave too much to chance. They are not very inspirational. And they are definitely not momentum producing.

The word “INTEND” or “INTENTION” is empowering. It just sounds more courageous, brave and bold. It builds confidence. And it is a tremendous momentum builder.

Next time you begin a new project, ask yourself:

“What do I INTEND to accomplish today?”

And see what happens.

Best,

David
