Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.
David G. Allen
The following is an excerpt from James Clear:
All too often, we think our goals are all about the result. We see success as an event that can be achieved and completed.
Here are some common examples…
Those are just a few of the many ways that we categorize success as a single event.
But if you look at the people who are consistently achieving their goals, you start to realize that it’s not the events or the results that make them different. It’s their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, not the individual event.
What’s funny, of course, is that this focus on the process is what will allow you to enjoy the results anyway…
In other words…
Fall in love with boredom. Fall in love with repetition and practice. Fall in love with the process of what you do and let the results take care of themselves.
