Taken from a post by Dave MacLeod, a climber from the UK. I thought it was fitting given the spirit of the Olympics.

“I’ve echoed the thoughts of many others before in stressing the importance of the process of what you do and finding enjoyment in that, rather than the result at the end. So in one sense, celebration of successes is a bit meaningless. Why celebrate when the enjoyable part (the thing you are celebrating) is over. Celebrate by finding the next thing. Obviously that only counts for certain types of things – especially very individual successes like in certain types of climbing. Where things are about people sharing or collaborating, it’s different!”
