Approach or result?

This may sound a little strange to ask but let me ask it anyway.

You focused on the approach or result?

Check this out from Dorfman…

“The approach leads to a result. A good approach had a much better chance of producing the desired result. However, this is not an inherent guarantee in competition. An athlete may execute a fine shot, a great pass, a perfect pitch. But other factors cause a bad result: the wind takes the ball off its path; the great pass is dropped; the hitter flails at the perfect pitch and hits a lame duck just over the infielder’s outstretched arm. Results cannot be controlled. But the performer can control the approach. Always. He can’t control what happens after the task has been executed. He executed effectively; he should repeat his effective behavior instead of concerning himself with what the result was.”
