Jim Saying # 8 – Trying

Everyone who knows me knows that "trying" is a statement of bad intentions.  If you say you are going try means that you are not really intending to do it.  The simple example I use is I put a pencil on the table and ask the person to "try to pick it up".  The person reaches for the pencil and I say do not pick it up just try to.  They usually get my point.  If somebody says they we "try" to get to a meeting, you should hear a statement of bad intention.

However no matter how concsious I am of this and how much I "try", I cannot get the word out of my vocabulary.  But who’s perfect.  The fun now is when people catch me at trying. 

As Nike says, just do it.
