great article by a great poker player. applies to everything is life.

There is a big difference between setting a goal and having clear intention. Setting goals for how many chips you have at each level can be problematic, but having an intention on what you would like to have can actually be beneficial. Today, I am completely unattached from the result! When I set my intention and speak it out, it's essentially me saying what I'd like to see happen in my day. This doesn't just relate to poker, it relates to all things in life. Being clear on the WHY you are doing something, and the WHAT you want to create, I believe helps you avoid living a life where you are just going through the motions without any real clear vision or purpose for what you want to accomplish. I've always been a very goal driven person and I'm happiest when I'm striving to achieve something, or create something in my life. Whether it's a health and fitness goal, career goal, or even a humanitarian goal, I live a more fulfilled life when I'm clear on my purpose and why I'm doing what I'm doing.
