"Let the fruit of action be your motive to action. Your business is with action alone, not with the fruit of action"
- The Bhagwad Geeta
What the writer wants to convey is to be process oriented not goal oriented person. Being a goal oriented person is good but that doesn't mean that you start to obsess about it. Focusing on the journey to achieve your goal is what matters. Enjoy the process, let the results not affect you in a drastic way. It is like preparing for an exam but not being worried about the result. You just do what you think you should be doing. I know its hard and its too philosphical but that doesn't mean it can't be true....Give it a try..who knows might be the solution to your problems.
