    Instead...

    Hi, can anyone let me know if the following sentence is all right?
    "This list is by no means to be exclusive; instead, it is intended to serve as a starting point for mutual discussion and exploration."

    Or, is there a better way to say it? (I hope you can guess the meaning I intend to say). Thank you very much. Have a nice holiday!

    Thank you very much. How about my use of "instead,"? Is it correct?
