I don't place much value on my expectations because I'm a very process oriented person.

Regardless of the outcome, if I want something then mastering the process of getting there is the correct path.

i just try to experiment and learn about the problem as much as possible.
There are times when you feel that you just don't have control over anything, no matter what you do, the result is negative.

in that case, i just try to study the problem and do the best thing possible (as if i do have any choice)
