Do or Don't

"You either do it, or your don't. 'Try' doesn't make sense.".

This is the quote I have on my white board today... No reason to have put this up, but just thought about 'Do or Die' and remembered the corporate lecture I attended one year ago.

"Do or Die" is all, most of us have heard.

There could be different versions to the reason behind the saying. One thing I can say for sure, however , is that 'to die' cannot be a solution to anything at all in life..

I recall from one of the corporate lectures that I chanced to attend last year, "You either do it, or your don't. 'Try' doesn't make sense.".

My version:" Do or Don't. Never say Try".

Coming to think of it....

This is kind of true.
When you DO, often, you are acknowledged.
When you DON'T, always, you are noticed.
When you TRY, seldom, your efforts are recognized.

Another way to look at it is when you 'Try' something, you are already half way through it. So the status 'Try', changes to 'Do' here, and 'Try' is no longer valid.

In this result-oriented world, both official and personal, I think we all should graduate to doing or saying what is possible and what is not. It helps everyone around.

The next time you want to 'try' something, ensure you don't say it. If your try doesn't end up in a success, there are very few people who say, 'At least you tried' and that attitude is what we need to inculcate some day, in us..

As of now, most of us fail to recognize and realize the 'Try' aspect in any task of others.To live life to the fullest, all of us need a pat in the back once in a while.. Let's start recognizing 'try' aspects wherever we find.

Well Said Deeps...

In my opinion, Do has a stronger inclination to action with Confidence rather than try... As the thought goes... being confident before start is half the battle won and hence The word "DO" has a magical effect on all the deliverables...

Keep writing....!!

Well Deeps --- in life at the ednof it, its about all or none. Try is something no matter how anyone tries will not be recognized.

Just like something belongs to me is living with me a part of me or not. Life never gives the leverage to be in Grey call ed as TRY.

Its all about all or none -- do or die. If its do or all its mine, belongs to me, a part of me.
Interestingly no matter i try to achieve something it not be with me until its all,so how much will pat on the back help. Actually live never gives us the leverage to live and move all through the while in Grey or Try
