It's hard not to Focus (even obsess) over the Outcome of our Efforts.
The problem is, for the long haul, that the Outcome is going to be lagging indicator of our Preparation.
Positive Outcomes without proper Preparation is called "Luck".
What we bring to the Work each day is a conglomeration of facets:
Moral Compass/Ethics/Sense of Purpose
Relationships with Friends/Family/Colleagues
Financial reality of Savings/Spending/Debt.
All critically important to Delivering and Sustaining Positive Outcomes.
Focus on the Preparation to bring our best possible Effort to the Work.
