A few years ago, I was attending a writers' conference where one of the keynote speakers was asked a question about her writing career. While I do not remember the question, I remember that she answered that she did not want to split her intent. In other words, she wanted to remain focused on her vision and not lose her intent to achieve it.
An art instructor once told me that it is important to finish every painting that I start to practice intent.
Whatever vision we have, whether it is a painting, a book, a poem, a song, a new home, a new job, once we can visualize it clearly, then we must intend to achieve it and move in that direction.
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." Henry David Thoreau
