When I look at many of the situations my clients face, business and personal, and their efforts and frustrations with obtaining success, one of the words that comes to mind is “process.”

Process is a series of continuous actions that bring about a particular result. Continuous means ongoing, such that the setbacks we face should be considered as just a single frame in the movie, the movie still pushing forward to that desired end result.

It’s important to be focused on the result, to have a good idea of where you would like to get, but guess what?

It’s much more important to be focused on the process, to continue the effort, to persevere, and to remain confident in spite of perceived setbacks.

Dont expect the process to be easy, quick, unnecessary or boring. Set a goal, set aside expectations, determine a process and channel your energy on the daily process, however small that incremental achievement might seem.
