Bhagavad Gita tells us to focus on the 'Action but not the Result'. Everyone knows the saying, but do not implement it. If implemented properly, this can be life transforming! Tips on how to implement this sutra in practice. A 🧡

πŸ‘‰ Why focusing on only the result is not useful? Everyone has the same result in mind. The differentiator between people who achieve it and those who don't, is the 'process'

πŸ‘‰ Define Process Goals rather than Outcome Goals ▢️To write a book: Target writing 200 words every day rather than get 1st draft by end of year ▢️To lose weight: Walk 10000 steps daily rather than lose 2 kgs a month ▢️To clear an exam: Study 8 hours daily rather than clear JEE

πŸ‘‰ Measure the output for feedback The output should be measured only intermittently to get feedback and to improve the process. Doing it constantly will lead to frustration Eg. Take mock test only after some dedicated study. Then use it to decide further course of action

πŸ‘‰ Compounding Since you are measuring your inputs, you can draw benefits of compounding and continuous improvement. You can keep updating your process and process goals to incorporate small improvements, which can add up to big changes eventually

πŸ‘‰ Tackling contradictory opinions Your peers will keep giving you their opinion on what you should do. Remember only you know what is best for you. Once you have decided your process, don't second guess. Stick to it and just keep improving the process

πŸ‘‰ Fear of the outcome Keep reminding yourself that the result is not in your hands, but only the hard work. If you are sincerely dedicated to the work, that is all you can do. Enjoy the journey, else the destination may be meaningless

πŸ‘‰ Process Mindset Once you develop this mindset, you will be on a path of constant improvement. With the right process, a bad outcome will be a result of bad luck. But luck doesn't remain bad forever. You will surely overcome all obstacles and luck will favour you!

πŸ‘‰ Benefits -You are focussing on things that are actually in your control, which is less stressful -It leads to continuous improvement -This is habit forming, which is more powerful than reliance on motivation. Motivation keeps wavering but process will keep you on right path
