How to Enjoy the Process

August 8, 2013 by

Last weekend, I spoke with a close friend and colleague who is also a successful comedian. She had just finished two nights at an important show. She shared her excitement over her performance as well as a bit of disappointment it was over. In the midst of her storytelling, something clicked. She paused and her tone shifted.

“The thing is, I don’t want to admit this to myself, but the joy is really in the process,” she said. “The process is the part I really love.”

We believe the work will get us to the end result, where we’ll finally find the sense of accomplishment we desire. But that’s just a story.

And if a woman who writes delicious poetry — expressing the full human experience — covers herself in dark clothing and mumbles when she speaks, we will never have the gift of seeing her fully. And we want to see her.
