Recounting Life Lessons Podcast Ep 20: Focus on the Progress

“Obsessing over end results robs us of experiencing joy throughout the journey”
Done focused vs progress focused

We first shared this lesson during our visit to Snoqualmie Falls and Candy Shop, near Seattle Washington. There are more things to experience than we will ever have the time to experience them in, but we can enjoy them one at a time.

In this episode, Sione interviews Alana on one of her favorite lessons, “It’s better to focus on the progress over the done”.

By applying this lesson you can eliminate the stress, overwhelm, and constant feelings of being behind by shifting your focus from the end results to the opportunities to make progress.

Another by product of focusing on the progress instead of the done is the ability to add more joy back into the journey and greater potential for increasing your confidence as well.
