Stop Trying


November 13, 2012 by eric echols

When we are trying to do something, we don’t have to really do anything. Trying tricks us into thinking that we are doing. It gives us the illusion of action. Trying also gives us an excuse for why we don’t achieve our objectives. You either try to do something or you actually do it. So, stop trying and start doing.

Question: Where have you been trying instead of doing?
