Being Deliberate – Peggy W Barnes

Being Deliberate

A word I use, a lot in my business, is “deliberate” or “intentional”.  To me, this is one of the most important words we can use in our day to day life……let me explain. has several synonyms listed for “deliberate”


When working with an organizing client, I want their attention focused on the new systems we put into place that will allow them to be more organized.  I want them focused on what they are bringing into their home.  I want them focused on a task until completion.  

When working with a life coach client, I want them focused on their part in a relationship. I want them focused on the thoughts and beliefs that are running through their head.  I want them focused on their dreams, goals and values. 

When we go through life willy nilly, we get to the end of it and wonder where the time has gone.  When we are deliberate about our days and have given our days, weeks, months, years and life some thought, we have greater success at reaching our goals. 

“A goal without a plan is just a wish”.  
~Anthony Robbins~

“The best way to predict our future is to create it.”
~Abraham Lincoln~
Being intentional and deliberate about life does not mean that it can’t be spontaneous and fun.  It doesn’t mean that there won’t be huge twists and turns.  
Being deliberate does mean that you will be aware.  Being intentional means that you will take some action steps towards your goals.  

We all know life is fluid and can change on a dime, but paying attention to the days we have been given, will create a more beautiful ride through life.
