Ok, first off, I am not a singer, at all, but I was sent this video last week and I fell in love with it right away. I've been thinking of how to make a Process vs. Endgaining video for a while and I can't help but want to talk about this one. I appreciate this video for 2 reasons:
1) Watching the attention to detail this coach employs is out of this world. She is working with what appears to be an advanced vocalist and she is right their with her. Watch how she uses her touch, voice and movement to coax the notes out of her student. Top Notch!
2) I love how she emphasizes the use of the process to attain the result instead of recreating what "worked." She even say's something like, if you recreate what you did, you may get the desired result but that's luck. Being with the process is the surest way to get a reliable result over time.
Process vs. Endgaining.
What is endgaining?
It’s the tendency to focus on an end result while losing sight of the process.
When we endgain, we habitually rush into or continue an activity without consideration of the process that we are using to reach our goal. When we do this, we often ignore the warning signs that could draw our attention to the fact that a problem is developing but instead, continue toward our goal. This often results in conditions such as poor co-ordination, strains, injury and even illness.
In order to be remarkable in your craft it's absolutely necessary to pay attention to the process and with all your might try to forgo engaining to achieve a result.
