We can pour our heart into something, but if the results we produce do not show it, no one will ever know.
This leaves us with a choice to make.
We can continue to put our heart on the line for the sake of the act itself, regardless of outcome.
Alternatively, leaving our feelings aside, we can switch to a results-focused approach.
Or, we can give up on our current course of action and choose a to go in a different direction altogether.
None of these options is necessarily better or worse than the other.
The choice is ours.
We simply have to be willing to live with the outcome.
