What's wrong with being focused on outcome? - Deepstash

What's wrong with being focused on outcome?

  • People are encouraged to set high standards like high marks or goals at work. The problem arises when all we do is stress about that benchmark. All efforts taken are directed towards the result with no joy in the process.
  • Instead of asking,"How do I do this?", result focused work gets us stressed, we are worried about whether we can do this at all or the possibility of failure looming over our head. Self doubt, tension and fear of failure are the only things we feel.

MORE IDEAS FROM Process driven approach: The secret of life

  • When our focus shifts from the result to the process, there is a sense of satisfaction or fulfillment as we have enjoyed working towards the goal. Work becomes a joy, as every step is a new learning experience or a challenge.
  • The pursuit itself is a fulfilling experience. When we are not in the clutches of the result, we are open to trying out new experiences, experimenting and taking risks. When we give our 100% to what we have to do

When we wish or pray we would ask that nothing goes or happens wrong. But it never occured to us that the fear of failing is succeeding over the goodness. Universe has the quality of absorbing and reciprocating the energy one emit. So while you make your next wish, make sure you are asking the universe to be in terms with you.

Example: I will have a nice day today!
