How to love the process

I’ve been away for a while and now I have come back to rescue my blog life 🙂

I wanted to talk about enjoying the learning experience. I have touched on this in my previous post, progress over perfection.

I’ve been trying to find a way to understand what this truly means and how to capture it. But I have come to realise that it doesn’t come from a realisation, it’s something that you do.

We live in times where we want the end results instantly, when things go wrong, we sort of get very frustrated and annoyed. Are we failing ourselves? Why can’t I do this? These types of questions. The important point to take away from this is that it’s not a failure at all, but rather an on going process of refinement. Refining our tools, our skill and reaching mastery.

Mastery has many obstacles and challenges, sometimes we must take a step back and slow down, in order to go forwards. It becomes frustrating to force yourself to do the things that you don’t want, because we want the end result quicker than the process allows. When we are not in unison with this concept, our failings begin to show.

I am talking about this because it’s been on my mind lately and I have gone through the frustrating times. Questioning myself and getting all to annoyed.

I want you to take away one thing to help you on your road to Mastery. That is, we must enjoy the learning process and only expend energy in that part. The goals we plant, but we must rotate the cogs in order for the machine to function.

A good way of doing this is to forget the the outcome, winning or losing is what causes us the pain, we love too far into the future when we are in this mode of pain. Just think about the enjoyment of your present self.

Thank you for reading 🙂
