Intentional Planning: Navigating the Maverik Path with Purpose and Poise
The Maverik's journey is akin to sailing unknown seas—a voyage of discovery and conquest. But as any seasoned sailor knows, a compass and map are as vital as the winds that fill the sails.
I found myself aboard a ship lost in a fog of activity, with no lighthouse in sight.
The turning point was realising that intention is the North Star in the Maverik’s sky.
With this revelation, I learned to chart my course through the networking seas by setting a clear intention before leaving port..
Quote to Ponder
"Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans." – Allen Saunders.
Reflect: Are your plans serving your life's purpose, or have they become the master instead of the tool?
The Maverik Alchemy of Intention in Planning:
For the Maverik, planning is about more than just what's next on the list. It's about understanding the heartbeats behind each tick mark.
Before your next task, ask yourself, "What is the intention behind this?" If it doesn't align with your Maverik map, dare to redraw your boundaries.
A goal without a plan is just a wish." – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Craft your goals with the golden threads of purposeful planning.
Embracing the Maverik' Mindful Breaks':
Mindful breaks aren't about mere escapism from work. It's the Maverik's oasis—time reserved to rejuvenate the spirit. Whether it's a meditative pause, a stroll amidst nature, or simply sipping your favourite brew, these moments recentre us amidst the entrepreneurial whirlwind.
Mindfulness Exercise: Schedule a five-minute break every two hours of work. During this time, practice deep breathing, step outside, or engage in a brief meditation.
Tools for the Maverik Trailblazer:
In the digital age, we have access to various planning tools, but as a Maverik, we prefer tools that acknowledge and respect our natural rhythm. Many of these tools offer the option to customise your entries to include "mindful breaks," which helps us maintain our Maverik spirit.
Rather than getting overwhelmed by the numerous technological options, we should select the tools that align with our intentions and complement our work instead of distracting us from it.
Customise your digital calendar with colour-coded intentions, not just tasks—green for growth, blue for creativity, red for passion
Point of Reflection:
Reflect on this, "Is the path I'm on invigorating the Maverik within, or is it just a well-worn trail blazed by others?"
Chart your Maverik journey not by the stars of chance but with the compass of intentionality so that every step resonates with the heartbeat of your purpose.
