We are easily impressed by outcomes, while it is the practice we should emphasize.
Outcomes constantly fluctuate between two opposites: success and failure. Outcomes are out of our control, they are dependent on many factors we do not even pretend to understand. Outcomes are in the future.
Practice is progressive growth, unstoppable. Practice is under our control, it is determined by factors (effort, time, attention) which we can allocate and redistribute. Practice is here and now.
