Life is process-based. To think otherwise is at best a disservice, and at worst a deception.
I think a key is learning to be at peace within process. But our culture seems to applaud thinking in black and white terms, ideas that embrace either/or mindsets and can be easily rallied around (either this, or that), and prefers to bypass process for immediacy and a results orientation.
It is a more truthful picture of reality (and coincidentally a more peaceful place) to walk both with what is and also what someday will be, to hold them together at the same time and not place inordinate value on one over the other.
