Your Monday Motivator: Setting Your Core Intention

The theme of this week’s Monday motivator mail is “Setting Your Core Intention” Each week I send a Monday mail as a reminder to creatives and creativists.

What happens when you start to turn a door knob that won’t budge? First, you turn it harder; then perhaps you pull up on the knob or push it down. Then maybe you wiggle it.
