Stop Trying So Hard – Do or Do Not

by Ray Reuter on October 4, 2010

Yoda:  Stop Trying So HardI love the wisdom of Yoda.  One of his golden nuggets is his advice to Luke Skywalker … “Do or do not; there is no try.”

Those with passion do; those without passion try.  When I say, “I’ll try,” I build in an excuse.  If I start but don’t finish, I can always say, “Well, I tried.”  But if I say, “I’ll do,” I commit to finish no matter what.  By definition, the word “try” implies potential failure.

Are you “trying” to improve your current state?  Are you “trying” to enhance your finances, marketing, selling, leadership, relationships, customer service, employee development?  Stop trying so hard!  Make a true commitment to change.  Pick something and do it or don’t do it – there is no try.
