I’m thinking a lot about intentionality lately.
Most people are drifting. Passively cruising along a path defined by others. Not even some specified “others” with a plan, playing us like puppeteers. “Others” as in an amalgam of randos with ill-conceived opinions and products.
It’s just so delightfully easy to ditch responsibility and with it many forms of constructive friction.
True intentionality is perhaps the quality I have come to value most in others. People who thoroughly think about the what, why and how of what they spend their severely limited lifetime with.
Embracing constructive friction, not accepting what feels right but isn’t, may be one of the most essential and attractive qualities of a person.
It certainly is the quality I try to live by.
