The Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA have become famous for their philosophy to become relevant in the NBA. "The Process", which required them to lose for a few years in order to earn first overall picks in the NBA draft was both mocked and criticized. Intentionally losing in order to win is not a philosophy that most people adopt. However, something else that is not often adopted by many is the idea of a process. Besides the "losing to win" element, "the process" element is even harder for many to buy into. In a society that values today and devalues tomorrow, trusting the process is hard.
Lord, help me to forget about yesterday and strive ahead today for tomorrow.
