Outcome vs Process

We live in a world where everything is outcome-driven.

Our productivity, efficiency, work, meetings and even our social and personal lives. We look forward to a favourable outcome in every aspect of life. Sometimes even from friends and family.

We are so trained to think of the outcome as the ultimate goal that the process of achieving the outcome feels cumbersome. The process is the hurdle. The process is what we try and avoid or rush through to get to the said outcome.

If we change our focus and start paying more attention to the processes we follow, improving them, learning from them, making them better every day, and dare I say, enjoying them – the outcome will take care of itself. We must strive to become better by improving our processes and not the outcomes. Enjoy the process and take pride in it.
