Value the Process

Years ago, I was given an impactful piece of advice by the Vice President of Motorola:

"The process is just as important as the end product."

Perserverence and endurance are important charater traits, but often, overlooking the process can be a crucial mistake. As I have thought and prayed about this over the years, what Paul says in Philippians has stuck with me:

 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:11-13

The focus of this passage is contentment. Our situation is often out of our control, but to be content is a choice. In the same way, valuing the process is an important attitude we must choose daily.

I recently had the opportunity to thank this Vice President for the impactful advice he had given me all those years ago. When I asked him if he had any new thoughts about it, he said this:

"The process is not equally as important as the product, it is more important." 

I am challenged by this and I hope you are as well. Let us look to Jesus and choose to have joy in every situation, value the process, and discover the secret of being content.
