What we intend and what shows up usually looks very different. Sometimes what shows up is more satisfactory than what we originally intended. However, most of the time there are too many road blocks and detours along the rocky road toward the goal, and we begin to justify that “close enough is good enough.”
Important because the final outcome of our efforts is a direct result of the smart choices and decisions we make, and the focused work we put into it. That said, it’s important not to focus on the end result or future outcome. Instead, put all your focus on the work that you need to do in order to keep the project moving in the general direction you want to go. But don’t set your gaze on the goal posts, set your gaze on the work that is directly in front of you today. By doing so, you will ultimately find your way to whatever dreams may come.
