End / endgaining
The ‘end’ of an action is the reason why it is performed; i.e. the result, or goal or desired outcome.
In the Alexander technique, the term ‘endgaining’ is used to refer to the process of going directly for an end, focusing purely on the goal we wish to attain and forcing ourselves towards it at any cost – irrespective of any harmful effects due to misuse of the self during the process, and without consideration of whether the means whereby used are best for the purpose.
