: the thing that you plan to do or achieve : an aim or purpose
Living with intention insures that your life reflects your deepest desires and values. Instead of reacting to life coming at you, get out front and identify, prioritize and live on purpose. Part of a life of intention is being responsible – for your actions, choices and future. Planning for your future means leaving a legacy and preparing yourself and your family for the inevitable end of life experiences.
The Transformation Game is a tool for self-discovery. While it plays like a typical board game, it is really much more. It helps you to identify strengths and weaknesses that may be helping or hurting the achievement of personal and professional goals. Before play begins, you will set a specific and brief intention, or purpose for playing. Think about what you’d like to achieve, remember or change.
When you retire or die, you want to know that the career or company you’ve built will live on. Will you leave a leadership legacy? And, how can you insure it? It’s more than the disposition of assets or stock transfers. Hopefully, you will have many years between retirement and death so begin now to contemplate and plan how you will share your wisdom and wealth. Part of successful aging is being active and giving back. Don’t let your years of life and professional experience go to waste.
Celebrating Age is a choice we can make. This graphic illustrates the key points of Ann’s TEDxSMU Talk where she shared how: be present, be grateful and don’t be afraid. Adding years to your life is inevitable, but how you age is a choice.
