Taking Aim

Did you know that the words “aim” “estimate” and “esteem” all have their source from the Latin word aestimare? Consider how these three words are related.

  • Esteem is the value you place on something.

  • Estimate is your evaluation of the cost to complete a project.

  • When you take Aim, you evaluate and adjust where you are pointing a weapon so that you will hit a target.

Each word teaches us about goal setting and intentional living. You value (ESTEEM) a desired outcome and ESTIMATE the cost to attain it. Then you intentionally direct your resources (AIM) at the outcome.

The practice of setting and pursuing goals develops a habit of living intentionally, not aimlessly. This practice of setting and pursuing goals is perhaps more valuable than always attaining those goals.

What are you currently aiming for?
