Which is more important, the process or the result?

When we are having a journey, we may focus on the process and disregard the result; when we solve a problem, we may mind more about the result rather than the process. Then, what about our life? will you first set up a goal, and then make every effort to make it come true? Or will you feel at ease at all circumstances and enjoy the joys and sorrows of life? Tell us your attitude towards life.

A great question actually. Some people might focus on the result than on the processs. But for me, I would rather enjoy the process, the road to our destination. That is what we enjoy the most in life.

I look at life as a journey, it takes step by step effort to reach your destination. There is no need to rush, because every step is important to be able to reach the next one and eventually your destination. I see both the process and destination as equally important. They are part of the whole and if one part is missing, you will not reach completion.

Hey, I think that the result is really important instead of the process. It doesn't really matter how you actually go about doing the process, so I still think that it is the result that matters. In each and everyone one of us. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

i do agree with prashanthalva, the result is expected, and the process we should be try our best to do,that's true, for everything will be happened during the process,so that we could not previse the result whether is good or bad,we can be make one or two plan to solve the problem in order to the result go heard with our expected.though it was bad, no dispointment in our heart. we had aready do our best.good luck and have a nice day!

We Have to Give Our 100% In Whatever We Venture to - Total Dedication ..
Yes . We Must Put our Mind On The Process .. The Result Will Come As Expected If Our Intention And Effort Are Sincere .. The Result is Not In Our Hands, But The Effort we Have to put Into the Process Is Surely With us .. So We Need To Put In Maximum Effort .. End Result Will Be As Expected .. God Willing ..

For me the journey is more important ... results will come when the journey is cheerful and fulfilling. But one has to perform that journey giving it ones full attention and love.

Is there really a true result? Everything we do results in something so our life is all cause and effect or really just cause. I suppose it's the journey.

I think that the process is more important than the result. Sometimes things don't turn out the way I planned and I don't reach my goal, but that doesn't mean that the experience has been a failure. Even when I don't get the "right" results, I still learn something. I have started projects that I didn't finish, and if you only care about the results, it would be easy to call those project a failure or a waste of time, but I don't see it that way. I am grateful for all of my experiences, and I have learned something from all of them. When I am painting the process is also the most important thing. I tend to forget everything around me, and the pleasure of creating something is the only thing that really matters. When I started painting I was more interested in the result, and it was my goal to paint something that I was able to sell. I wouldn't say that I don't care about the result anymore, because I still want to sell my paintings, but I don't feel that I have wasted my time when the paintings don't turn out the way I wanted. Sometimes the so-called mistakes turn into a new technic, and I wouldn't have been able to create all of my paintings, if I had never made any mistakes.

I am more interested in the result than the process. I want the outcome to be a certain way, and I will do the best that I can to achieve it. If I absolutely can not do what needs to be done, then I'll go for a plan B. However, if there are a number of different methods and processes that will get me to the desired end result, I'll choose whichever one is the easiest, and most practical, and also most inexpensive
