Results should not be the focus of your experiment, says Nick at Bitesize Bio. Since results are not something you can just order up, focusing on how you designed the experiment will at least help you make sure that it's "watertight," which is more likely to bring in positive results. "If you are focused on how you ask the question rather than getting a result, it is a lot easier to accept the negative result while giving yourself credit for the good work you have done and move onto the next question with your confidence, sanity and faith in your scientific method in tact [sic]," he says.
