Process vs Result

Here’s a thought and question to ponder, to feed your mind. Recently I saw a post on Facebook asking public opinions on which is more important for performance: Process or Result?

Naturally, a question like this will draw attention to vote for one or the other. When I paused and pondered on the question for a while, I thought that both process and result are very much inseparable. The question shouldn’t be which is more important, it should be which is more important to focus on? I also thought that result is the outcome of doing the right processes well. I joined the discussion and gave my two cents by commenting:

Results will take care of themselves when the right processes are done rightly. Here’s a Jim Rohn quote, “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”

After giving it more thought I’m convinced that focusing on processes is THE KEY to peak performance. In this blog post, I’ll elaborate more by using an example from my peak performance experience.

Improve Your Self-Image by Improving Your Self-Talk

“The only difference between the best performance and the worst performance is the variation in our self-talk.” ~ Dorothy and Bette Harris

Suppose we could plug a set of headphones that are able to capture the thoughts of the people around us and listen to their inner conversations with themselves, what would we hear?

Suppose we could record our own inner voices that run throughout the day, and play them aloud at the end of each day, will we be shocked by what we would hear?

We carry conversations with ourselves all the time. If we can measure every statement that we make to ourselves, how many negative ones will we catch? Here are some typical inner dialog examples:

“I hate the alarm clock. I dread getting up and going to work”.

“Shucks! I’m running late again”.

“Not another bad hair day”.

“I think Sue and Jane are talking behind my back again”.

“I’m just not good at time management.”

“I’m not productive at all this week”.

“I’m too tired for my gym workout today. I’ll do it tomorrow”.

“This is the third time I’ve made the same mistake. Stupid me”.

“I feel so unloved”.

“I feel nervous about the presentation. I hope nobody will notice my shaking hands”.

“Why can’t I attract more success and money?”

“I just lack self-confidence. I can’t win this.”
