3 Reasons You Need To Focus On The Process, Not Your End Goal

Hello Monday. 

New week.  Fresh start.  Time to get serious about your fitness. 

And if you’re ready to get serious, you must tackle your process. 

That’s right.  Instead of focusing on the end result, this time try focusing on your process. 

Here’s why: 

  1. You can’t reach your destination without a map. 

I have the goal to go to every PGA Tour major in the same calendar year.  Sounds neat, right?  But without a process and plan to do it, it’s just a fun goal to talk about. 

Golf Body Blueprint is the golf fitness road map for golfers who have been working out for a while.  Activate is the road map for beginners to the gym.  Google maps will get me to my destinations. 

  1.  Your goals may be wrong. 

I’d love to have 6-pack abs by next week, but it ain’t gonna happen.  Following a process allows us to re-evaluate to determine whether or not our goal is realistic or not.   

Think about it like running a marathon.  You may plan and plot for months to finish in 3 hours, then you get a stinging cramp at mile-12 that feels like you’re being stabbed in your side.  What do you do now, after never planning to slow your pace?  Do you quit the race, or do you adjust accordingly? 

  1. The process makes you appreciate the results. 

Over 70% of people who win the lottery go bankrupt within a few years.  It’s because they don’t have the feeling of validation that we can only get by making the effort. 

When we focus on the process to get into shape and play our best golf, we stick to it for the long-term because nothing makes us appreciate anything more than working and earning it…no matter what we try to tell ourselves.   

Sorry, but there are no hacks in this game.  You, me, all those guys on Tour…we all have to put in the work, and fall in love with the process.

PS – If you’re ready to get serious, we can show you the process.  Heck, we’ll map out the next 8-weeks for you, and be here for you every step of the way. 

If you’re just getting started, then Activate is the process best suited for you.  If you’ve been working out for at least the last few months, then GB2 is your process.
