In everything that we do there is always a process. We are so used to looking forward to the end result that we miss it entirely. The worst thing about it is that we treat the process as something we don’t want to do just to get to the end result. Then we allow ourselves to be happy for a short time. Until we want something else, and we are unhappy again.
Learning to love the process will instantly give us two things. One is to feel happy right now. and second a much greater result. How is that possible you ask? Simple. When you learn to love what you do you pay more attention to it. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about working out, making sales calls or courting the girl we want.
Learning to pay attention to the little things helps us understand what we’re experiencing. I read once the we don’t fall in love with other people but with the feelings the process gives us. I started to think how can we apply it to everything else. Insted of rushing I started to take things slow and noticed what I like and what I don’t.
I found that the things I don’t like to do where things that where not progressing my towards my goals. They where things I just did to pass the time. When I shifted my attention to the things I liked, I started to increase my productivity. That increased my sales and my paycheck.
Try taking things slow, try to notice how it effects your experience and let me know in the comments below.
