When the result doesn’t match

Is the proof always in the pudding?

What do you do when the result doesn’t match?

Was it a mistake?

Was your expectation off?

Or just the final result?

Does that mean it was impossible from the start?

When things don’t go your way, does that mean your decision was bad?

Not necessarily.

Controversial to say perhaps.

Because most people can only think in one binary dimension.

But look a bit deeper. It just means you just didn’t get the result you wanted, it doesn’t mean your decision was bad.

Yes, the two are separate.

It’s a tough thing to accept for most people.

Most people think if the result was wrong, even the choice must have been wrong.

But sometimes we make the right choice, but get the wrong result.

It happens.

It’s called bad luck.

Admittedly it’s mismatched.

That’s why people tend to think one must lead to the other.

But that’s basic thinking that hides the complexity of the reality of life.
(and most people are ignoring the reality of life anyway, especially these days…)

Yes, you need to learn how to make good decisions in business.
Yes, you want to get to the best outcome.
Yes, you want to get the result that you are after.

BUT, you have to accept that sometimes you can make all the right moves, do all the right things, say all the right things, and yet you still won’t get the result you wanted.


Because sometimes the result you get will mismatch from the choice you made.

It’s just a fact of life you need to accept.

And preparing for it will make it easier for you to adjust course when things don’t go exactly as planned.

You have to be ready for it, not fall apart and whine.

You still aim, and you still try, but you accept that the outcome isn’t fully dependent just on your desire. You simply have to keep at it and keep correcting course until you hit the mark.

That’s a big lesson in this even if you disagree with my premise.

Read it again and see.

I’m quite sure someone needed to hear this today.

For everyone else?

File it away until you need it.

You will.

This level and type of thinking is what I work on closely with students in my TOTAL TRACTION program.
