Positive Intent

Positive Intent isn’t about upgrading your skills. It isn’t about motivation. This is not a life hack; it’s a new life.

Living with positive intent means cutting through the noise of negativity and apathy …

and making a commitment to bring rigorous generosity and unwavering curiosity to every interaction. It’s your lifeline when you’re feeling overwhelmed, when your relationships falter, when you question yourself or your value or your direction.


James is one of the most talented, reliable and level-headed professionals I know. He has coached me with patience, encouragement and insight. He’s a smart and humble guy who likes to surround himself with other smart and talented people so he can continue learning and, in turn, impart those lessons and wisdom to others.

Living with positive intent means adopting the five principles that will help you become more trusted, more fulfilled and more resilient: 

Remember Your Audiences

all of them, even when they
can’t hear you

Ask a Question Instead

because your opinions
aren’t that helpful

Purge Emotional Toxins

which sounds painful but
is actually pretty easy

Seek Elegant Solutions

rather than solutions that
just solve things

Sustain Your Intent

by taking care of yourself
and thinking small

This is not an easy time for anyone, but it doesn’t have to be so hard.

We can’t control our circumstances, but we can control how we respond to them.

The future is unpredictable, but we can future-proof ourselves by deciding to live with positive intent.
