    Both. Results are harder to determine and evaluate, however.

    OK. Just checking to see if it was a "trap" thread.

    Both. Intentions present purpose. Results present how far towards that purpose things are progressing, and whether the results match the intention. Results do not always indicate that the intention of a project has failed. Sometimes there may be other results that are just as valuable. Also, results may just not have been met, YET.

    Not a trap, any conclusions that I draw from this will be left for myself.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    True enough. Nobody ever thought to add in anything about the common defence when they wrote the Constittuion.
