So for as much as I champion building better processes, I just realized that I haven’t been applying this principle to my own life!
Too often I get stuck waiting for some future, far-off achievement to validate my efforts, but wind up waiting in vain. Life happens, plans change and my mystical cookie never comes. How do I evaluate my efforts if I didn’t get my cookie?
I have to define the win as nailing the process; not achieving the goal.
