I just got back to e-mail since TSI, and what you say is very important about intention, both individual intention and shared intentions in a group. And I'm thinking about the importance of my having more daily intention. I want to have more a sense of a daily purpose; about "what's important for me today?" and at the end of the day "A review of how it went with my intention?"
Another thing that interests me related to intention is commitment to act. It seems like the threshold for groups becoming powerful community actors is when people have a shared purpose (intention), and then commit to act together towards that intention or purpose.
I love this conversation. Thanks,Mike
