What are you really looking to accomplish from a conversation, a work meeting or your life for that matter?

When you are meeting someone for the first time, what are you saying to yourself about the purpose of the interaction?

If you are speaking to a client or perhaps a co worker, what is the ultimate goal of the conversation?

I have been asking myself these questions a lot lately.  It all came down to one key question for me,
what is my intention?

I have been working towards using this question in every interaction.

If my intention is to get something from a person such as to buy something from me or perhaps their agreement, is this really being true to who I am? 

The answer to this question can end up being the result of the interaction.
Do you feeling guilt, frustrated, confused, angry, resentful or the need to be right?

Is this how you want to feel after an interaction with a particular individual or anyone in general?

If you want to feel different after the interaction, what do you want to feel?

If you intention is peace, joy, calm, love, how would you approach the interaction differently?
