Wise Words

3.  Process is more important than outcome.
When the outcome drives the process we will only ever go to where we've already been. If process drives outcome, we may not know where we're going, but we will know we want to be there.

I came across Bruce Mau Design's "An Incomplete Manifesto for Growth" the other day and #3 really stood out to me. Most crafters and artists will tell you that they love the process of their work and are often a bit let down once a project is finished. But sometimes, when your art needs to pay the bills, you can get caught up in the outcome. For me that usually affects my products....not always necessarily for the good. So once in a while I need to remind myself that the process is more important than the outcome especially when I need to reach beyond where I've already been.
