I’ve heard some people say, “There is no try, only do”. I think those people are wrong.
Doing is going on a hike on a packed, dirt road with barely a one degree incline. You could do this hike while sleepwalking, with both legs behind your back.
Trying, on the other hand, is like hiking through trees and rocks with a 70 to -70 degree incline with an elevation gain of 400 feet, water crossings, loose gravel, stinging nettle, mountain lions, fallen trees, rabid squirrals and you have flashlights and food incase something goes wrong. Trying is going for something when you are unsure what the outcome will be.
One experience I had with trying was learning to drive a manual car. At first It was definitely trying. I’d grind gears, stall on the highway, rev the engine way too high, and roll back a quarter mile when starting on a hill.
Then, after driving the car for a while, my shifts were smooth as butter, the engine was only revved to show off, I barely rolled back ever and stalling became a myth.
So, “Try, try, try, then do”.
What do you think when someone says “there is no try”?
