How many times have you worried about an outcome? Have you ever lost sleep over the results of a test, a medical exam, or a job interview? You may have even started stressing about the results before even undertaking any of these. Far before we can even influence an outcome, we begin to fret about it. This constant worrying can be a huge distraction from performing well. All of the energy that we could have been directing towards actually completing a task is wasted on worrying about a future outcome. Imagine the potential we waste every day by worrying about things that we can’t change at present. While our present actions can affect future outcomes, worrying about what could potentially happen offers us nothing fruitful.
I myself am not immune to the slippery slope of worry. I was recently in the Canadian wilderness, photographing the snowy owl. A regal and almost mythical looking creature, the snowy owl was inherently quite a fun subject to photograph. I was also no stranger to photographing birds, in fact, I look forward to the challenge of capturing such unbridled animals. However, that particular morning and I did not feel like going out in the cold and photographing owls. So I started to make excuses.

I was so concerned with the details of what could get in the way, that I did let them get in the way. When I arrived at my shooting location, I wasn’t fully present. My mind kept wandering back to thinking of hypotheticals. By evening, we had retreated back and I went through the images I had come back with. I was unfortunately not very pleased with my work. I felt like this set of photographs wasn’t up to my usual standard and I thought back to why this might have happened. It wasn’t my best work because I had not tried my best. I was worried about the result and didn’t focus on what I was actually doing. I learned that day that the results of my work are the outcome of what I put in, and my input is the only thing I can really control.
