“Intentions account for about 20-30 percent of the variability in goal achievement–that’s a fancy way of saying that about 70-80 percent of the time we have plenty of commitment, but we screw it up along the way. I don’t know if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but the road to failure surely is.
“There are plenty of different mistakes we can make, but the one most frequently responsible for our troubles is that we miss opportunities to act in a timely manner.”
–Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson in Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals
