Why Your Intentions Don’t Really Matter, But Outcomes Do

This is wonderful. Intent IS NOT THE SAME as effect!

“What’s even more important is that outcomes happen externally.  It doesn’t matter if you didn’t mean to hit that bunny with your car, you did.  You were a well-intentioned driver and now you have a dead bunny.  What are you going to do about it?  You can try to adjust your driving (pay more attention, drive slower, etc.), or you can blame the bunny (shouldn’t’ve been there).  In either case, it happened, regardless of your intentions, and now you get to choose how to move on.”

I highly recommend checking out the entire piece by Samuel Killermann HERE in full!
