It's easy to get focused on the result that we want without asking ourselves about the required input and process to get there. We can get mad all we want about not losing ten pounds after working out for a week, but it won't do us any good. It's on nobody's shoulders but ours. Yet somehow we repeatedly get upset when the desired result requires a different process than we imagined.
It comes down to owning the process. We as individuals are where we are because of the many inputs, processes, and outputs that abound in our lives.
Let's not get upset about the results we didn't get from the work that we didn't do. Take ownership. Own the process.
