According to the Business Dictionary, the process is the “sequence of interdependent and linked procedures which, at every stage, consume one or more resources (employee time, energy, machines, and money) to convert inputs (data, material, parts, etc.) into outputs. These outputs then serve as inputs for the next stage until a known goal or end result is reached.”
This should be the mindset of a goal-oriented individual. Whatever it is you are doing at any point in time should be a road leading you home.

Enjoy the process regardless and make sure you are nurturing it. This is how you grow and in turn, make for a great career and business success. Instant gratifications have made patience and persistency less appreciated in this part of the world. Nevertheless, the trailblazers have always valued the process.
