Process Over Product
The process is about what you become on your journey. The personal growth you achieve during the process is way more significant than the product (outcome, goal, dream aspirations, etc).
If you focus solely on the goal you wish you meet, if you give yourself permission only to celebrate your accomplishments, you’ll completely miss out on one of the most amazing things about this whole process: your personal growth.
Each step of the way, every hurdle and every success is an opportunity to reflect, to celebrate and to revise your process accordingly. By putting all of your attention on the end result, you’ll forget to take a look at all of the changes that are occurring as you’re finding your way.
