When you hear…
‘I will do it…’ vs. ‘I will try to do it…’
Which one gives you confidence?
I know which phrase I prefer to hear.
When you hear ‘I will try…’, challenge it if you can. Ask if they will do it, or not do it, and that ‘try’ does not give you any comfort about their commitment or ability to deliver.
When you hear yourself saying ‘I will try…’, challenge yourself. What excuses are you already forming in your mind?
Do you want to be thought of as someone who delivers or someone who just tries?
For Star Wars fans, there is the immortal line by Master Yoda when teaching young Luke Skywalker…
‘Do, or do not. There is no try.’
My best wishes, Paul
