Process over Outcome!

"Process over outcome" refers to a mindset in which the focus is placed on the steps or actions taken to achieve a goal, rather than solely on the end result or outcome. The idea is that if one focuses on the process and strives to continuously improve it, the desired outcome will eventually be achieved.


Think Michael Jordan became the best ever through just pure talent? Not a chance - he believed in the process and consistently did the small things which led to him becoming the best basketball play ever. The GOAT!

Benefits of a process over outcome mindset include:

  1. Increased motivation: When the focus is on the process, individuals are more likely to feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in their efforts, even if the ultimate outcome is not achieved.

  2. Improved performance: By focusing on the process, individuals are better able to identify areas for improvement and make adjustments that can lead to improved performance over time.

  3. Reduced stress: A process-oriented mindset can help reduce stress and anxiety by shifting the focus away from the outcome and onto the actions taken to achieve it.


An example of a process over outcome mindset in action is in sports. For example, a basketball player who focuses on the process of shooting a high percentage from the field, rather than just trying to score as many points as possible, will likely see improved performance over time. They may focus on proper technique, such as using the correct hand position and following through, as well as practicing regularly, rather than just trying to make as many shots as possible in a game. This same mindset can be applied to many other aspects of life, such as work, education, and personal development, by focusing on the process of continuous improvement and learning, rather than solely on the end result.
