Doing versus outcomes

It’s outcomes that create the challenge not the doing.

Outcomes are what we are conditioned to focus on and as an outcome is a future event it causes us to engage with thought of the future. As the future doesn’t exist it creates uncertainty in us and further thought. We become obsessed with the outcome and thus get stuck in our thought, which leads to sabotage and then we end up not doing. Then we do not achieve our goals.

Doing is an action that can only be done in the present, we can only ever do something right now and therefore it does not engage the thinking mind in contemplating an outcome and possible failure or success. We fear both and, in fact, often we fear success more as it takes out of our comfort zone.

If we spend our time thinking about the end result, we will not do anything.

So if we just focus on the doing and enjoy the doing right now in this conscious moment then the outcome is irrelevant because only by doing something will we achieve our goals.
