Everything we do each day is to reach certain goals. As long as we learn to love the process no matter how much of a grind it may seem, we will reach our goals and accomplish more in between.
In poker, good players say “don’t be results oriented.” If we lose with pocket aces after pushing all-in preflop, then we have already WON because that is the right move. Know that winning is not the end; making the right move on every play IS the end.
Enjoy the process of getting to our goals, and embrace it.
