Good Intentions versus Good Actions

drug and alcohol testingYou have heard the phrase, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” It is meant to describe situations in which people meant to do something good and productive, but allowed themselves to be sidetracked and led astray from the topic or situation at hand. Of course, it is not very often that we think of distraction as an active choice, but it is one. When we allow our attention to waver all of the time, instead of focusing upon that which makes us stronger, better, or upon that which makes us more productive, then we are considered “ditzy” or “flighty” or some other derogatory word.

Napoleon Hill, the great author of Think and Grow Rich, has described an ounce of action as being worth a pound of intention. If we act upon our intention and actually follow through, then we create a habit of success. If, however, we make our intention so unrealistically high that we are never able to act upon it and succeed, then we are creating a habit of failure.

Hill advises his apprentices to make it easy to succeed, but to always act upon our intentions.

Now, at work, we have all been in the position where we “meant to get something done” but there were so many other things which needed to get done, as well, that it was overlooked or delayed. This is a good example of a boss getting mad at his secretary because she seemed to be too incompetent to handle a simple task, when she was really focusing on a great number of other simple tasks first.

When it comes to employee drug testing, an ounce of action really is worth a pound of intention.
