Philosophical perplexity about intention begins with its appearance in three guises: intention for the future, as when I intend to complete this entry by the end of the month; the intention with which someone acts, as I am typing with the further intention of writing an introductory sentence; and intentional action, as in the fact that I am typing these words intentionally.

Intention in Business

Intent continues to be imperative for business success today. Carlos Ghosn, chairman and CEO of Nissan and Renault, is widely credited for leading a dramatic turnaround. Ghosn articulated his intent to return a near-bankrupt Nissan to profitability in 1999, and achieved that within a year. Since then, he has transformed Nissan into one of the world’s most profitable companies. I had the good fortune of talking with Ghosn recently, and found that he continues to forge ahead on the strength of bold intent.
