Mallika Chopra is the author of two gift books for parents, the founder and CEO of and IntentBlog, a social media site and its sister blog. In this self-help memoir, the daughter of Deepak Chopra (who wrote the Afterword) presents her quest to find more meaning, more joy, and more balance in her life.

Chopra has discovered a road map to help modern-day women and men navigate their busy lives. The secret of achieving a fulfilling existence is through the following steps: Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take Action (INTENT).

The book consists of six chapters on these qualities which — if practiced — can lead to a flourishing and fulfilling life. Chopra, like the rest of us, has trouble staying on the rigorous path of intention which involves discipline and commitment.
