From Idea to Action

I don’t know about y’all, but now and then I have a great idea on how to bless my sweetie. It’s usually a little thought running through my head when I’m running errands or a spin-off of something I read on a blog.

Yeah, I want to do something like that!

Intention is great. It’s the birth place for many good things, but if you don’t move from intention to actual doing, it’s merely a thought, a wish. Your husband will not experience your love in action.

From Idea to Action - What steps do you need to take to make it happen?

How do we take the practical step from idea to action?

Do you have a to-do list? A bullet journal? A sticky note? Write down the idea (before you forget it) and plan for a time when you will follow through. What steps do you need to take to make it happen? Be specific about those steps and when you will take them. If you find yourself struggling to follow through, ask yourself if you need smaller steps or if there is a friend who can encourage you through the process.

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.  Oscar Wilde

  1. Such excellent encouragement, Lori! Sometimes, it seems the greatest amount of intention I have to exert is from conception to inception. It’s good to consider why that is.

  2. Great encouragement and practical. I’ve recently started a blog aimed at husbands to offer similar encouragement and advice. I’ve love if you gave it a look at provided feedback.
    For marriage and for God!
