It is human nature to anticipate good things from our actions. Sometimes we get good results, sometimes not. When we don’t get the results that we wanted we start to feel sad and all the time spent in waiting for the result is wasted. Even if the result is good the time spent in waiting for it is wasted anyway.
Time is one of the most precious commodities that you have. You just have it. But it is up to you how you spend it. In my personal opinion I think we must not waste time in waiting for results of our actions. Suppose, we have taken an exam and now we are waiting for its result. We can’t help it. We are anxious to know the result. Here is where you should calm your mind because you know that waiting for the result isn’t going to do anything. What you should instead do is plan for the worst result. Plan for a future in which you fail the examination. Just imagine, you gave it your all and you may still fail. It happens. After experiencing failure you must not lose yourself in sadness. Start the next big thing.
You took the exam, now you start working on that music of yours. Start working on that business. Start working on that garden you always wanted to cultivate. The point being, we should never wait for results. Let the results come. You keep doing the next best thing you want to do. This is the best way to be successful.
People say that quality of work is important. This is true. But, quality comes from quantity. When you do a lot of work, make a lot of things, take a lot of tests/exams then you develop quality in your work. Not dwelling on results will help you actually do many things and eventually everything you do will be a work of quality.
