Q: How can I do some work without expecting any result from it?
A: It is the nature of the mind that it works well when it has some goal. However, when some work is done towards attaining certain goal there may be anxieties associated with the result and the work may get affected due to these anxieties. It is due to this reason that one should not bother about the result while doing work. It is not about not having goal but it is about not bothering about the outcome once the goal has been set. It is about enjoying the journey once destination has been decided. It is about being present/available once the life work based on Swadharma has been decided.
