Be honest with yourself for a moment, and answer this:
When somebody comes to you at work and says “Hey, I need you to find the answer to _________,” do you respond with something like
I will try to find the answer
For years, I have been a person who “tries” but just a short period of time ago, I realized I needed to do more. Why was I just “trying” and not “doing?” I mean, if you are going to put forth the half-ass method to “try,” shouldn’t you just go ahead and put a tiny more effort in to “do?”
I know, I probably sound a little bit like Yoda except I could never put it quite the elegant way he does:
I’m not just talking about work either.
Relationships of all types need more “doers” and less “triers.”
Don’t be a person who “tries.”
Be a person who “does.”
If you are only plan to “try” then watch this last clip from our friend Yoda.
