Ed Seykota offers this comment on intentions at his web site:

“Intention = Result. The thing you state as your intention may not be your real intention. In that case, you intend to not manifest your statement intention as part of a larger (secret) intention. For example, you promise to show up on time and show up late. Your intention may be to gain attention by making people wait for you.

So many people fixate on rules and techniques, but forget “intentions”. As you approach your daily life, contemplating how you will find the big score, have you thought about your true intentions? The trading psychology part of the equation is just as important as the quant side of the equation.
