Kelly Slater is a world-class surfer with nine titles under his belt. He knows that obsessing on an outcome will only hinder his performance.

“When you’re not worried about the outcome, that’s when you can discover things about yourself. You trust your gut,” he says.

If you’re thinking about what you have to finish instead of what you’re doing step by step to get there, you’ll never innovate or solve problems.

“Life changes,” Slater says. “You can set out for a goal, and it won’t happen. For me, it seems to work to just feel it as I go along.”
